Supporting Georgia's Youth: Mental Health Resources for Children and Adolescents


Mental health is an important aspect of overall health and well-being, and it is especially important to prioritize the mental health of Georgia's children and adolescents. Unfortunately, many young people in Georgia face challenges that can impact their mental health, such as academic stress, social and family problems, and exposure to trauma.


Here are some resources for supporting the mental health of Georgia's youth:

  1. Georgia Department of Education: The Georgia Department of Education provides a range of resources for supporting the mental health of students, including information on mental health services available in schools, guidance on identifying and responding to mental health concerns, and resources for parents and caregivers.

  2. Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL): GCAL is a confidential and free mental health hotline that is available 24/7. Trained professionals can provide support, referral information, and crisis intervention to individuals of all ages who are experiencing a mental health crisis or need assistance in finding mental health resources.

  3. Children's Healthcare of Atlanta: Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is a pediatric healthcare system that offers a range of mental health services for children and adolescents, including therapy, medication management, and inpatient treatment.

  4. Georgia Center for Child Advocacy: The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy is a non-profit organization that provides mental health services, including therapy and crisis intervention, to children and families who have experienced abuse or trauma.
