Crisis Support Lines

Crisis Support Lines (for Georgia and US Residents)

cri·sis /ˈkrīsis/ : a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or danger

A crisis can also be defined as “a time when a difficult or important decision must be made” or “the turning point of a disease when an important change takes place, indicating either recovery or death”.1 Crises can happen at any time for any reason. It’s during a crisis that we feel the most vulnerable and need some support.

Georgia offers MyGCAL (Georgia Crisis and Access Line) as an app on Google Play and the App Store. Here you will find links to several other crisis support lines. There are also text support services if you don’t like talking, or you are hard of hearing. MyGCAL also offers the option of a chat box or they will text with you.

Trained staff operate these lines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, even during weekends and holidays. They are experienced with helping people who are facing severe emotional distress. They are also trained to help people who are trying to escape from domestic violence or human trafficking situations.

Please note: a crisis support line is not a substitute for behavioral health therapy. It is to be used for urgent situations where a person is overwhelmed to the point they are considering suicide or self-harm, or if they need support to escape an abusive situation.
