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.
