Georgia Crisis & Access Line

In July 2006, the Georgia Department of Human Resources (DHR) introduced the
Georgia Crisis & Access Line, a new statewide hotline designed to streamline
24/7 access to mental health, developmental disabilities, substance abuse
and behavioral healthcare crisis services. Georgia DHR awarded the service
to Atlanta-based Behavioral Health Link (BHL), a division of Integrated
Health Resources, LLC.

The goal of the Georgia Crisis & Access Line is to promote friendly and easy
access to services throughout the state's 159 counties. 1-800-715-GCAL is
available day or night in time of crisis and to assist with routine access
to services.

1-800-715-GCAL (4225) is staffed by trained and caring professionals who are
available around the clock. The confidential service is free to the public.
There is also a provider and resource database online at to help
with information about service options.

A crisis has no schedule. Help is available 24/7 for problems with mental
health, drugs, or alcohol.
