Behavioral health

At Unity Health, we believe caring for your mental health is just as important as your physical health. We offer compassionate mental health services close to home on both an outpatient and inpatient basis.

Our team of psychiatrists, licensed mental health counselors, psychiatric nurses and other specialists provide medication management, counseling and therapy services, and psychological testing to people of all age groups. Discover more about our services.

Adolescent care

At Unity Health Specialty Care in Searcy, our adolescent inpatient acute behavioral unit offers therapy to children ages 12 through 17. Called Courage, this 11-bed unit is for children who are still in school but are having emotional or behavioral health difficulties that require short-term hospitalization.

Children at Courage will meet with their psychiatrist and other members of their treatment team daily to review their progress and work on their individual goals. Patients will take part in therapeutic group activities, while an on-site certified classroom ensures that they won't fall behind in school during their stay.

Adult care

Our Compass program, located in both Searcy and Newport, provides short-term inpatient care and treatment for adults ages 18 through 54. Patients at Compass receive a full range of mental health treatments for emotional and behavioral difficulties. They will meet with their psychiatrist and members of their treatment team daily. They'll also take part in therapeutic group activities and recreational therapy.
