988 Dialing Code Now Available for Call or Text in Georgia

As of July 16, 2022 the 9-8-8 dialing code is now available for call, text or chat. Callers will be connected to a trained staff member who can help address immediate needs and connect the callers to care resources, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

9-8-8 is a direct, national three-digit line that connects individuals with suicide prevention and mental health crisis resources.

9-8-8 calls, texts and chats in Georgia are answered by the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

9-8-8 was established to improve access to crisis services in a way that meets our country’s growing suicide and mental health-related crisis care needs. 9-8-8 will provide easier access to the Lifeline network and related crisis resources, which are distinct from the public safety purposes of 9-1-1 (where the focus is on dispatching Emergency Medical Services, fire and police as needed).

If at any time you or someone else is in danger, DIAL 9-1-1, or if you or someone else is in distress, feel like there may be a risk of suicide, or having a crisis related to mental health, substance use, or a developmental disability DIAL 9-8-8.
