At the UAMS Psychiatric Research Institute, our experts in the Walker Family Clinic provide outpatient mental health services to adults, ages 18 and up. We offer counseling and psychiatric services in a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, psychologists, neuropsychologists, physician assistants, nurses, clinical social workers and professional counselors.
Disorders treated in the clinic include, but are not limited to the following:
- Depression and Mood Disorders
- Post-traumatic Stress and Anxiety disorders
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Disruptive Behavior Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Adjustment Disorders
Services are offered for adults (ages 18 to 64). General services include:
- Psychiatric evaluation
- Medication management
- Psychological testing
- Neuropsychological testing
- Individual, family and marital/couples and group psychotherapy
Services begin with a thorough diagnostic assessment by a licensed clinician followed by an appointment with a psychiatrist, if needed. Based on the findings of assessments complete by our team, patients are provided with an individualized treatment plan and may be referred for further evaluation, consultation, medication management and/or psychotherapy. These sessions may take place at the Walker Family Clinic, in other UAMS clinics or through community providers.
Our doctors work with other health-care providers, school personnel and family members as needed to coordinate recommended evaluation and treatment.
