Getting Mental Health Help

Mental health issues are a serious matter. They aren’t like a cold that you can just suck up, hoping it will be gone by next week. They need to be acknowledged, nurtured, and cared for.

But how can the State of Georgia help?

The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) provides many services geared specifically for mental health issues. They have 6 regional offices and a 24/7 Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL): 1-800-715-4225. Their website also provides lots of resources for both adults and children and adolescents. For specific help, try visiting the Behavioral Health Link (BHL), which has a form to help you identify the services and facilities best geared for you.
