13 REASONS WHY NOT
The Georgia Crisis & Access Line (1-800-715-4225) is a toll-free, confidential hotline available 24 hours a day 7 days a week from anywhere in Georgia. Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), it connects callers with a trained, professional counselor who can help them get the services they need if they or someone they know are in emotional distress or a suicidal crisis, or have other problems with mental health, drugs, or alcohol. They will assess crisis situations over the phone and have a mobile team that can go out and do a face-to-face assessment as needed. They can get someone into an inpatient setting quickly and also have vacant appointment times at their disposal to fast track someone into the community mental health system as needed.
