Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed or suicidal, a crisis worker will text you back immediately and continue to text with you?
Many people, especially younger ones, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It's a free service to anyone-- teens, adults, etc.-- who live in the US. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to.
If you'd rather call: 1-800-273-8255
No shame, talk to someone!
OR...Text & Chat
Additionally, we are pleased to announce that Georgia’s youth can now access GCAL’s services via text and chat through a new app called My GCAL, which became available for download in late January 2019. Developed by Behavioral Health Link, the app will allow youth to call, text, or chat with GCAL 24/7/365. Help is in your pocket–just a click away. The caring professionals of GCAL are ready to help, and users can choose how they want to reach out.
