Letter From Our CEO
On behalf of Families, Inc. I would like to say “welcome” and “thank you” for taking the time to learn more about this organization. We at Families, Inc. consider it an honor and a privilege to provide outpatient behavioral health services to the residents of twenty-one counties in Northeast, North Central and Central Arkansas.
Families, Inc. is fully accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC) and is certified by the Arkansas Department of Human Services to provide Outpatient Behavioral Health Services. As outlined in our mission statement, the primary goal of Families, Inc. is to help each individual and family member enjoy life to the fullest. Psychiatrists, mental health professionals and qualified behavioral health providers work with the individual, family and community in order to achieve this goal. Services are provided on site in one of our eleven clinics or off site where needed, such as homes, schools, detention centers, etc.
To maintain this level of service and ensure quality, the staff members of Families, Inc. are held to high ethical standards. Each of our psychiatrists, psychologists, and professionals are considered for privileges to practice only after careful review and approval by our Quality Improvement Team. Our qualified behavioral health providers, most of whom hold a degree in the human services field, receive an additional certification after successful completion of on-site training. They are equipped with the latest information regarding community resources and play a vital role in the provision of services to our clients.
I would also like to mention that unfortunately, there may be times when individuals receiving services at Families, Inc. experience a significant crisis after normal business hours. We at Families, Inc. understand that these moments of crisis can place individuals and families in a potentially stressful and vulnerable position. I am pleased to share that Families, Inc. has recently developed a Crisis Response Team to assist you and your family through this difficult time if it were needed.
If you have questions or comments regarding the services we offer, or if you are interested in employment opportunities, please contact us at 870.933.6886 or 1.877.595.8869 (toll free).
Again, thank you for your time and interest. We hope you enjoy the Families, Inc. website.
— Mark Thurman, Chief Executive Officer
