An Arkansas mental health center is slated to close in September 2019 after more than 50 years in business. Little Rock Community Mental Health Center, Inc. and an associated day treatment facility will close due to health care structural changes that have resulted in unsustainable administrative costs, according to the center’s executive director, Thomas Grunden. The closure is scheduled for September 23.
According to Mr. Grunden, the closure will affect 65 employees and contractors, many of whom have taken other positions. He anticipates that some teams will join the Centers for Youth and Families, which provides specialized prevention, intervention and treatment services.
Little Rock Community Mental Health Center, Inc. is a non-profit behavioral health care organization. The mental health center is committed to supporting each individual in fulfilling their chosen path of recovery towards self-sufficiency, improved quality of life and wellness through the provision of accessible, comprehensive, and evidence-based community treatment services and supports.
