The need for emotional and behavioral health services is ever-present for Arkansans, especially amidst the ongoing pandemic. The Promoting Positive Emotions (PPE) program was created with the sole purpose of helping Arkansas residents directly impacted by COVID-19 receive the emotional and behavioral health services they need to gain strength to carry on during these difficult times.

Available through June 2, 2021, all services through the PPE program are completely confidential and absolutely free. There are no age requirements. The program is also available to children under age 18 as long as there is parent/guardian consent to provide services.

Additional information is always available at or the 24-hour Crisis Support Line at 833.993.2382.

After June 2, 2021, as always, the Arkansas Department of Human Services, Division of Aging, Adult and Behavioral Health is available to connect Arkansans to behavioral health services in their area. See more online to learn more about behavioral help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
