Voices for Georgia’s Children, Georgia Child Fatality Review, Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Department of Human Services’ Division of Family and Child Services, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have come together to produce a series of PSAs aimed at children helping children. These PSAs include survivors who have attempted suicide and share their stories in dealing with depression, anxiety, and other adolescent issues. Others offer hope and support in this peer-to-peer message to children who may be at risk.
Individuals in need of crisis management, who exhibit signs of suicide, or identify signs of suicide in others, can call the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225, 24/7. All calls are free and confidential. Alternatively, please visit www.mygcal.com for assistance. GCAL is provided statewide by DBHDD
