The State of Mental Health in Georgia

Georgia currently ranks 35th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Georgia Department for Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) is the agency responsible for bringing that ranking up through education, outreach, and advocacy. DBHDD focuses on community-based recovery via accessible and convenient treatment options. Providers, counselors, and therapists in Georgia are encouraged to focus on their local community to achieve the greatest impact. Training qualified therapists, counselors, and psychologists, ensures that Georgia residents will be receiving high quality care. Through increasing awareness, continuing care, and developing the psychiatric workforce, the State of Georgia is armed with the priorities necessary to achieve their recovery initiatives.

Additionally, Georgia has many projects in place to prevent substance abuse and promote mental wellness. One such program is the GA Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Collaborative (GADAPC). This project encourages an alliance between both public and private sectors in monitoring drug abuse and proper medication disposal. The GADAPC also encourages both sectors to stay afloat of legislation surrounding mental health and get involved and push legislation that could be beneficial to all Georgians. This is especially important as individuals with severe mental illness are 20% likely to land in prison instead of a rehabilitation center.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse in Georgia, call HELPLINE Georgia for Substance Abuse at 1-800-338-6745. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
