Lenape Regional High School District selected Care Solace, an organization determined to calm the chaos of mental health care coordination, to expand access to community mental health and substance use treatment providers for students, staff, and their families.
Care Solace provides a Care Companion™ team who can quickly and confidentially find available providers in the community.
Care Solace also equips school systems with a customized online tool that gives community members a way to anonymously search for community-based providers matched to their needs.
“We are working with Care Solace to promote mental health wellness in providing access to a no-cost resource that we believe will be helpful to our students, families, and also our staff,” Superintendent Dr. Carol Birnbohm said. “This is a tool we hope will make it easier to ask for help. It’s at no cost to our families and staff, it’s confidential, and we know there is a need for a resource like this.”
Lenape Regional High School District’s Board of Education recently adopted a resolution to establish the District as a “Stigma-Free Zone” for mental health awareness.
Partnering with Care Solace is just one initiative among many that the Lenape District provides to support its objective to have 100% of our students maintain emotional, physical, and mental well-being throughout their lifetimes.
With Care Solace, families and staff gain access to a dedicated Care Companion™ to navigate the mental health care system on their behalf, calling providers to find the right fit and availability.
They help families with private insurance, Medicaid, and no insurance, and are available 24/7/365 in any language.
Care Solace’s care navigation system uses proprietary technology and a vast database of behavioral and mental health care resources to find carefully verified therapists and programs in minutes.
The Care Solace service is now available at no cost to Lenape Regional High School District students, staff, and their families.
If you or a family member are looking for help with mental health or substance use call (888) 515-0595 or visit www.LRHSD.org/CareSolace.
