Behavioral/Mental Health

At UAMS, our caring and compassionate experts offer behavioral and mental health services at two locations.

A wide range of outpatient and inpatient services are provided at our Psychiatric Research Institute, utilizing evidence-based techniques to treat mental health and addictive diseases. The institute also has a number of specialty programs to treat addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, we can help women who are going through postpartum depression, high-risk pregnancy, infertility or grief associated with pregnancy loss.

At the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, patients who are experiencing problems related to stress, cancer or other chronic illnesses can receive specialized care at our Behavioral Medicine Clinic. At this clinic, patients and family members receive support and learn coping skills to improve quality of life.

Both facilities are staffed with some of the brightest and most qualified doctors in Arkansas, and we are committed to working within our community to reduce the stigma of mental illness for patients and their families.
