What We Do

Arkansas Crisis Hotline

The Arkansas Crisis Center offers a 24/7/365 hotline. Individuals with concerns ranging from depression, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse, physical and emotional abuse, relationship violence, divorce, loneliness, sexual assault, HIV/AIDS, financial difficulties, runaways and other youth issues, emergency shelter, pregnancy, sexual orientation, etc. may call and receive compassionate nonjudgmental assistance. Dial 1-888-crisis2 (274-7472) to talk with a crisis intervention specialist. We are here to listen and support you through whatever difficult times you may be facing.

Online Crisis Chat

Not everyone has access to a phone or a private environment from which to call. Others are not comfortable talking on the phone. For those situations we have Crisis Chat. The same support and assistance offered through our hotline is also offered through our chat line. Crisis Chat is currently available from 6pm to 11pm Sunday- Wednesday. Visit www.arcrisis.org and click on the “chat now” button.

Community Outreach

The Arkansas Crisis Center is committed to raising awareness about suicide prevention in our state. We offer informative programs to civic groups, churches, community groups, businesses and schools. We are also available to participate in community events such as health fairs and mental health workshops. For more information contact Susan Hartman at (479) 365-2142 or shartman@arcrisis.org.

Survivors of Suicide (SOS) Support Group

The Arkansas Crisis Center hosts Survivors of Suicide (SOS) support groups throughout Arkansas. For so many survivors, a crucial part of their healing process is the support and sense of connection they feel through sharing their grief with other survivors. This group provides a safe place where survivors can share their experiences and support each other. Please note that these group are not currently meeting. However, if you are interested in joining or facilitating an SOS Group, please contact Susan Hartman, Director of Crisis Services, at  (479) 365-2142 or shartman@arcrisis.org.
