FULTON COUNTY COMMISSIONER EMMA I. DARNELL FILMS TELEVISION PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH

Commissioner Emma I. Darnell

Fulton County Commissioner Emma I. Darnell (District 6) cares deeply about the health and well-being of the citizens.   Since Fulton County is the epicenter of the opioid epidemic in Georgia, and has uninsured individuals living with addiction, Commissioner Darnell recorded a television public service announcement (PSA) that lists a website for people to access services.   The taping of the PSA coincides with September, which is National Recovery Month.   The PSA will air on Fulton County Government Television (FGTV) and appear on the website for this Department.          

Read this to recognize the warning signs of suicide.   Get help by calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Message from the Director

LaTrina R. Foster                  
Thank you for visiting the website for the Fulton County Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities.

Starting January 1, 2018, our Department will implement exciting new changes that will enable us to expand the number of Fulton County residents that we currently serve, open new facilities at more convenient locations, and enable residents to have easier access to behavioral health care.  

Therefore,  More Locations + Reduced Wait Times + Easier Access = Better Health!   Read about these new changes here.
