Starting the conversation is the first step to ending the stigmas surrounding behavioral health, but finding a provider when and where you need them isn’t always easy. Our whole person approach to healthcare recognizes that mental health is just as important as physical health.

Here, we are sharing resources that can help all Arkansans, regardless of their insurance status. And Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield members can learn more about their behavioral health benefits.


Stress, anxiety, depression and substance use disorders can be difficult to talk about, but they are more common than many realize. It’s time to talk about it.

Through the AR ConnectNow platform, help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You don’t need health insurance or a referral to talk to local mental health professionals. By normalizing the conversation about this important, often misunderstood topic, we can foster healthier, happier, more informed and empowered communities.

For immediate support call AR ConnectNow at 1-800-482-9921.

Our approach to healthcare acknowledges that health is influenced by many factors, including both physical and behavioral health. There’s a strong link between these aspects, and Arkansas Blue Cross is committed to addressing all the ways lifestyle, behavior, environment and medical history can affect the physical and mental health of those we serve.

We call this a “Whole Person Approach” to healthcare.
