About STRIVE Clinic
STRIVE (Seeking To Reinforce my Identity and Values Everyday) is a school and community-based mental health outreach program operated by UAMS and the Psychiatric Research Institute (PRI) at UAMS. Our program mission is to provide mental health services to students who are having emotional and/or behavioral issues in school and at home so that they learn new skills needed to be successful in life.
Who We Treat at the STRIVE Clinic
Our clinic primarily treats children ages preschool through high school graduation, along with their parents or guardians. Our program has highly trained specialists who can provide individualized treatment plans for children and families to address any emotional and behavioral issues.
Children referred to our program will receive a thorough assessment, which consists of clinical interviews, mental status exams, and reviews of existing evaluation or historical information. Based on the assessment, treatment is initiated or appropriate referrals are made for psychological evaluations and subsequent treatment plan recommendations.
School and Community Services

The STRIVE program accepts referrals from schools, primary care physicians (PCP), self/parent referrals, as well as referrals from other mental health agencies and juvenile court.
For patients whose pay source is Medicaid, a primary care physician (PCP) referral is required. Please contact your child’s physician for a referral. If your child does not have a physician you may call our office and ask for information regarding how to pick a PCP.
For patients with commercial insurance, please call the clinic to determine if coverage is available for services provided in your child’s school.
