Access to Crisis Services
For immediate access to routine or crisis services, please call the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL) at 1-800-715-4225. GCAL is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to help you or someone you care for in a crisis. GCAL professionals will:
•Provide telephonic crisis intervention services
•Dispatch mobile crisis teams
•Assist individuals in finding an open crisis or detox bed across the State
•Link individuals with urgent appointment services
In addition, GCAL will help you to access a State Funded provider in your area in a non-emergency as well.
A nationally accredited Health Care Call Center, crisis center, and partner in the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the Behavioral Health Link Crisis call Center is proud to operate the Georgia Crisis and Access Line.
Text & Chat
Additionally, we are pleased to announce that Georgia’s youth can now access GCAL’s services via text and chat through a new app called My GCAL, which became available for download in late January 2019. Developed by Behavioral Health Link, the app will allow youth to call, text, or chat with GCAL 24/7/365. Help is in your pocket–just a click away. The caring professionals of GCAL are ready to help, and users can choose how they want to reach out.

The App is available and downloadable via the App Store and Google Play
Cartersville City Schools now has an app. Members of the community can enjoy instant access to Canes news and calendars. Parents can access their student's grades, class schedule, attendance, school calendars, social media posts and lunch menus at the touch of a button. You can get instant notifications from your child’s school and from the district, so this winter you’ll know immediately when school is canceled for inclement weather. You can also add money to your student's cafeteria account from your device. You'll find other great features listed under the Resources icon. For complete login info and details on how to customize the app to meet your family’s needs, click here.
