Georgia Crisis & Access Line (GCAL)
Crisis Contact Center
In 2006 BHL began a unique collaboration with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Development Disabilities. For the first time individuals from anywhere in Georgia could call one toll-free number for access to care in a crisis. The Georgia Crisis & Access Line (GCAL) links callers with trained professionals who provide the most appropriate linkage to care for mental health crises, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse crises.
Blended Mobile Crisis Response Services (BMCRS)
Crisis Contact Center staff coordinate with mobile dispatch when needed to send a mobile team to a caller to deliver crisis intervention services in—person and connect callers to out-patient services.
