What is a System of Care?

A System of Care (SOC) is a philosophy built around the idea that the family should be in charge with regards to the behavioral health services they need. The “system” (which can include state departments, behavioral health providers, teachers, church leaders, or anyone else the individual family thinks should be a part of their team) works with the family to achieve the goals of the family. 

Services available include mental health, substance misuse, life skills and skill building, and many others.

If this is an emergency and you are in need of immediate assistance please call 911 or the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL) at 1-800-715-4225, or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
