For individuals, families, and communities across metro Atlanta, the impacts of COVID-19 have left us feeling stressed, anxious, and struggling to cope. When we think about the impacts COVID-19 on children and adolescents across our region, we are also grappling with the increased vulnerability this pandemic has placed on the mental well-being of our youngest population.
The South Fulton Mental Health Collaborative
Odyssey partnered with Fulton County Schools and the South Fulton Parents for Education to formulate the South Fulton Mental Health Collaborative (SFMHC). The collaborative was developed to create opportunities and resources regarding mental health in the South Fulton County community with the goal to increase knowledge and understanding of mental health topics and decreasing stigma.

On the first Wednesday of every month, the SFMHC, along with various community partners, host virtual presentations to provide information and community resources via Facebook Live.
