Georgia Crisis & Access Line

 

For crisis help 24/7, call 800-715-4225

The Georgia Crisis and Access Line is a free service sponsored by the Georgia Department of Human Resources. The toll-free, confidential hotline provides assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide access to mental health, addictive disease, and crisis services anywhere in Georgia.

They have trained professionals that can assess crisis situations over the phone and have a mobile team that can perform face-to-face assessments 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.
