Atlanta is located in Fulton County, Georgia, and is home to approximately 420,0001 full-time residents. Situated in the heart of the deep south, Atlanta revels in southern tradition, southern food, and southern charm while offering world class entertainment, business, and amenities to its citizens and visitors. Millions of people travel through the Atlanta metro area every day. Some come through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest, while others commute to work at the headquarters of many public and private companies, including The Home Depot, The Coca-Cola Company, and UPS. Media mogul Ted Turner chose the city as home for his companies, CNN and TBS. Today, the city is viewed as a global city that embraces technology while honoring its rich civil rights history.

The Georgia Department of Public Health reported that from 2006 through 2010, 11.2% of adults in the Fulton County area had poor or fair health overall2. Depression was reported by 5.6% of adults, and in 2013, county residents had an average of 2.8 poor mental health days in any given 30-day period3.

Oak Hill Center Helps Children and Families
Fulton County provides comprehensive mental and behavioral health services to Atlanta residents. With the mission of providing competent, culturally sensitive care to all of those in need, the Fulton County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Department aims to help all clients gain access to care and achieve stability and independence within their own communities. The comprehensive network of services includes mental health, addiction, and developmental assistance5.

 

Working with community-centered facilities and county-based services, the department offers specialized care to adults, children, and families. For adults, the county provides assessment and treatment, including group counseling, individual therapy, referrals, medication maintenance, addiction treatment, inpatient care, and continuing services after discharge6.

 

For children and families, the county operates the Oak Hill Child, Adolescent, and Family Integrated Care Center, which has been fully renovated to offer state of the art services to children from birth to 21 years of age. The center empowers, educates, and advocates for children and families in need. By integrating all branches of care in one location, children can receive a sense of continuity while having all of their emotional and health needs met. The center focuses on reading, asthma care, obesity, family skills, community assistance, and school involvement. The center also provides basic healthcare services, vocational development, and physical fitness facilities. Members can use the gymnasium while their children attend daycare in the center. With the Oak Hill Center, Atlanta region residents can access competent, quality care for themselves and their families. With the cooperation of the center, the county, and the community, residents have every opportunity to achieve independence and improve their mental well-being7.
