According to Mental Health America of Georgia, more than 2,300,000 state residents suffer from some form of mental illness, yet the state ranks third-to-last regarding access to treatment. Not to mention, Georgia consistently ranks among the states with the most prescription opioid deaths. This is a frightening combination of problems, and we want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Peach State, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
