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.
