Emergency Mental Health Resources

The following facilities provide 24-hour assistance and have shared with the District that they will complete emergency assessments at no cost. If your child already receives support from a mental health provider, you may wish to make contact with that professional first. You may also want to check with your insurance company regarding mental/behavioral health coverage. Please note that the District does not endorse any provider, makes no representations as to the effectiveness of these providers, and makes this information available only as a helpful resource.

Purposity

In Fulton County, we are always looking to join forces with other partners and organizations that will help us make a bigger impact in the lives of the community we serve. With this vision in mind, we are excited to introduce our newest partner, Purposely, an Atlanta-based organization that will connect Fulton students in need with people in the community that can help. This is done through a mobile app designed to make it easy for neighbors to help neighbors. By signing up, generous donors are sent a weekly notification with a specific need for a specific student. It might be a winter jacket for a middle schooler or household essentials for a high school family that lost its home in a fire. Users decide if they want to help and in just a few clicks on their phone, the need is met. They know exactly who they are helping and why. It’s the simplest way to make an impact locally.

The app is also available in the App Store and Google Play.
