About Crisis Stabilization Unit
The Pulaski County Regional Crisis Stabilization Unit (PCRCSU), staffed by UAMS, is the state’s first nationally accredited unit and the first UAMS program to be accredited by CARF International. CARF International is an international organization that provides accreditation worldwide for behavioral health programs.
The 16-bed unit provides an alternative to psychiatric hospitalization or emergency room visits for persons in crisis or who encounter law enforcement due to their psychiatric condition. The staff includes a multi-disciplinary team of UAMS nurses, social workers, prescribers and psychiatric technicians. The unit serves Pulaski, Perry, Saline, Lonoke, Jefferson and Grant counties.
