About Pulaski County Regional Crisis Stabilization Unit
The Pulaski County Regional Crisis Stabilization Unit (PCRCSU), staffed by UAMS Health providers, is the state’s first nationally-accredited unit and the first UAMS program to be accredited by CARF International. CARF International 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.
