As soon as you are diagnosed with a mental health issue, it’s important to receive treatment. Unfortunately, many people forgo treatment simply because they don’t have access to mental health care due to lack of local providers, traveling distance or cost.
Baptist Health helps break down those barriers to care through distance counseling, a service that allows individuals across the state to talk to a counselor located in Little Rock via video, email or phone. All communication is encrypted for patient protection, giving you the freedom to discuss your issues in a secure, safe environment. Distance counseling patients have access to the same services provided at the Little Rock-based counseling center including personal counseling; marriage, family and relationship counseling; critical incident debriefing; conflict management/resolution; assessment and referral; work and career issues; grief/bereavement counseling; stress management; basic life skills; financial counseling; and spiritual direction.
Distance counseling is conducted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please call 501-487-6010.
People of all faiths are accepted at the Behavioral Service Clinics and through the distance counseling services.
