New CAPS Resource Connects Campus with Off-Campus Mental Health Services

Pat Walker Health Center's Counseling and Psychological Services has partnered with ThrivingCampus to help increase access to community-based mental health services for the campus community.

ThrivingCampus offers a robust, online database that makes it easier for students, faculty and staff to connect with off-campus mental health providers who are a good fit for them.

The database can be accessed at uark.thrivingcampus.com from your computer or mobile device.

"We are excited to announce this new resource to help promote mental health care in our campus community," said Josette Cline, Ph.D., CAPS director. "CAPS provides a range of mental health services for students including time-limited individual counseling services, so this resource offers students an easier way to find and continue with longer-term or specialized treatment. It also provides a convenient and accessible resource for faculty and staff on our campus to help identify community-based resources for mental health treatment."

The software service streamlines the process of locating and contacting a community mental health provider, as well as offers the benefit of searching based on a variety of criteria including insurances accepted, gender, languages spoken and type of treatment.

Through ThrivingCampus, local mental health clinicians can create a free profile and list their practices. Providers are solely responsible for the content of their listing and for keeping their profiles up-to-date. Learn more about finding off-campus mental health services.

"We have been very fortunate to continue to grow CAPS' impact and increase access to crucial mental health services both on and off campus," said Cline. "We've created a lot of new programs and resources that are making a huge difference in keeping students on the road to graduation."
