BCS partners with mental health organization

Submitted by Bill Tipple

Bellefontaine City Schools has partnered with Care Solace, which is a mental health organization that helps expand access to mental health care providers for students, staff, and their families.

The Care Solace service is available at NO COST to Bellefontaine City Schools’ students, staff, and their families.

Care Solace provides a team who can quickly and confidentially find available providers in the community. Care Solace also features a customized online tool that gives you a way to anonymously search for community-based providers matched to your needs.

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 effects of loss, isolation, uncertainty, and fatigue brought on by the pandemic continue to pose new challenges for students, staff, and their families,” said Chad Castruita, Founder, and CEO of Care Solace. “We are proud to support Bellefontaine City School District in prioritizing the well-being of its school community by providing timely access to mental health care and substance use treatment services.”
