ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia State University officials say the school's Center for Healthy Development has relaunched a free child abuse helpline.

Officials said Thursday that the Prevent Child Abuse Georgia helpline has been relaunched with support from the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.

The helpline was shut down in 2011 and began operating again on Feb. 26.

GSU officials say the helpline is staffed by operators from the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia and will operate Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Officials say the 1-800-Children helpline is meant to be used for support and referrals, but isn't intended to serve as a point of contact during a crisis situation.
