Text4Help was introduced in 2018 by Fulton County District 2 Commissioner Bob Ellis, Vice Chairman of the Commission, as a tool for students to receive mental health support from licensed clinicians. The program was piloted in several high schools and eventually expanded to all district high schools and middle schools. In the wake of the pandemic, social unrest, and virtual learning, to name a few challenges for our youth, the district wants our students to know there is always someone there to listen.
Students experiencing anxiety, stress, etc. can receive assistance by anonymously texting their unique school code after dialing into the Text4Help hotline:1-844-201-9946. The certified mental health professionals are provided from district social services partner CHRIS180 and respond to inquiries within three to five minutes. The conversation is completely free, safe, and confidential.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call Georgia Crisis and Access Line,-800-715-4225, or 911. If you need to anonymously report a safety/security issue to the FCS Tip Line, a tool to S.H.A.R.E. do that here.
