Community schools introduce a new mental health resource

Plainville Community Schools is partnering with a new mental health support resource.

Care Solace is a cost free, confidential, accessible service that seeks to address mental health needs with well-vetted professionals in the local area, regardless of insurance.

“If anyone has tried to access mental health supports for a loved one experiencing difficulties, you know that it can be a very challenging and lengthy process,” Superintendent of Schools Steven LePage stated. “Essentially, this service was created to help individuals access the mental health supports and care they need in a way that removes many of the typical barriers and obstacles faced when trying to find the right care for your needs.”

With Care Solace, families and staff gain access to a dedicated  concierge to navigate the mental health care system on their behalf, calling providers to find the right fit and availability. They help individuals and families with private insurance, Medicaid, or no insurance, and are available 24/7 in any language.

School district administrators and support staff will participate in an orientation and training as part of the Care Solace resource launch for Plainville Community Schools.

Plainville families and staff members may access Care Solace services immediately in the following ways:

●Call 888-515-0595 to speak with someone from the Concierge Team. Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

● Visit the custom district link: Answer 10 questions and receive an extensive list of referrals to applicable care providers.

Care Solace does not require a name, address, phone number or date of birth, and all information is confidential and secure. As of November 2020, Care Solace was serving 2 million students, over 6 million family members and 150,000 staff members in more than 200 school systems.
