New Georgia App Helps Teens Struggling With Mental Illness
Gov. Brian Kemp announced an app to go along with the Georgia Crisis and Access Line or GCAL. The hotline, which launched in 2006, receives almost 1,000 calls each day. Now, the state is adding a GCAL app.
The GCAL app is free, confidential and easy to use because with a click it opens a text, provides a phone number, or offers the chance to chat live with someone about mental health concerns like depression, anxiety, eating disorders and self-harm.
The My GCAL app is available for download on Apple and Android phones.
