The Women’s Mental Health Clinic treats women who are struggling with mental health issues and are pregnant, postpartum or having difficulty getting pregnant. This can include drug use disorders like opioid use disorder. To make an appointment, call 501-526-8201.

The Women’s Mental Health Clinic assists with mental health treatment during pregnancy by either working directly with the patient in clinic or by collaborating with the woman’s local physician via select telemedicine links across the state.

Treatment often includes group and individual therapy, along with medication-assisted treatment for drug use disorders.
