There is a center in Georgia that was created to help you when you first encounter mental illness. It's called the Crisis Intervention Center. There are four such centers in Georgia, in Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Rustavi and Batumi. Officially it works from 11 am to 4 pm, It means that if you get ill after 4, you can only use their 24-hour telephone service. But can they actually help you?
