Our Mission

Stay Positive Arkansas

The mission of Stay Positive Arkansas has been to help individuals and communities mentally and emotionally recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past year, our crisis counselors have helped Arkansans in all areas of the state. Our grant period is coming to an end on June 2nd, 2021, but help is still here. Our program partners are existing local behavioral health service providers throughout the state and they aren’t going anywhere. You can also reach out to AR-Connect, a grant-funded program provided through UAMS.
