Welcome to Mid-South Health Systems
Serving 20 counties in Eastern Arkansas.

In 1968 Mid-South Health Systems opened its doors as the first community mental health center in Northeast Arkansas. At that time we were called George W. Jackson, named after the “father of the modern mental health movement” in Arkansas.

We were part of the state system until 1997 when we incorporated as a private, non-profit mental health provider. At that time we changed our name to Mid-South Health Systems and were offering services in seven NEA counties.

In 2010 Counseling Services of Eastern Arkansas, a sister community mental health center, merged with Mid-South, adding 6 more counties along the mid Delta.

In 2018 our 13 counties grew to 20 with the addition of seven counties to our West, making MSHS the largest community mental health center in the state.

Mid-South is one of 12 community mental health centers in Arkansas. These 12 centers, each composed of several counties, form the Mental Health Council of Arkansas. They cover the state with mental health resources for children and adults including the seriously mentally ill and persons struggling with substance abuse.
