Welcome from the CEO

Serving ten counties in central Arkansas, CA provides a full continuum of innovative, community-based, behavioral health care services that enhance the quality of life for those who experience a mental health and/or substance use disorder. When 1 in every 5 people will experience a diagnosable behavioral health condition in a given year, it is critical that we all have someone to turn to for help when needed.


Mental illness continues to rank second (behind only cardiovascular conditions) in burden of disease rankings and, combined with substance use disorders, is the leading cause of worker disability in the United States. In spite of research demonstrating that the right treatment is effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with these disorders, nearly two-thirds of all people with diagnosable mental health conditions do not get treatment. The cost of care, the fragmentation of the service delivery system, and stigma are significant barriers that cause many people to hide their symptoms and avoid treatment.


We hope that the behavioral health information available here is useful in your recovery journey or in your efforts to provide support to someone you care about. We encourage you to visit www.bringchange2mind.org and to check out the links to other sites that share a similar mission. Thank you for your interest in our cause and please let us know if we can serve you in any way.
