Mental Health Resources in North Little Rock, Arkansas

Two problems associated with mental illness is the lack of available resources and the stigma attached to it. Many fear seeking help because they are afraid of how they will be viewed by friends and family, and some simply can’t afford the help of a psychiatrist or psychologist to diagnose and treat what can be a debilitating illness. With the constant chaos surrounding health care and the lack of insurance coverage millions of Americans deal with, mental health is often put on the back burner when money is tight.

The Little Rock Community Mental Health Center, Inc. offers an intake and assessment, outpatient clinic, medication management, housing and residential support, day treatment and community intervention for those who are suffering from a mental illness. Those with thoughts of hurting themselves or others can also call the crisis hotline that is available 24/7.
