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.
