How do I access services?

To access services from the Fulton County Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities (BHDD), please call one of the locations above that is most convenient to you, and schedule an appointment for an intake assessment.   You will need to bring the following items:

  • Birth Certificate or Social Security Card
  • Insurance card
  • Picture ID of parent or guardian

Are the locations Open Access where people can walk-in and be seen, or are appointments required?    

  • Appointments are highly recommended so you don't have to wait for an available time to see the therapist.   A behavioral health assessment is required to begin services, and this may take between 1.5 to 2 hours.

Are school-based services offered?

Yes, the Fulton County Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities offers school-based services as part of the Georgia Apex Project.    This program provides school-based mental health services in an effort to reduce the number of youth with unmet mental health needs that contribute to poor academic performance and juvenile justice referrals.  

The Georgia Apex Project has three primary objectives:  

  • Provide greater access to mental health services for students
  • Provide for the early detection of students mental health needs
  • Sustain increased coordination between Georgia's community mental health providers, local schools,  and school districts in which they reside  

Master level licensed and/or license eligible clinicians are assigned to Forrest Hill Academy, Alonzo Crim Open Campus, Banneker High School, Creekside High School, Woodland Middle School, and Heritage Elementary School.  Youth receive school based-individual and/or group counseling, and case management services.  Referrals for additional resources, including more intensive behavioral health services are provided as needed.    

What types of payment are accepted?    

  • Uninsured clients are funded by state contracted services
  • Insurance accepted: Amerigroup, CareSource, Cenpatico, Medicaid, Wellcare, and private insurances may vary.
