Voorhees Township Public Schools (VTPS) has 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.
“Upon starting here in August, I noticed there was a need to link mental health coordination and resources to many families in need,” said Dr. Melody Alegria, Director of Special Services, Voorhees Township School District. “We see firsthand how difficult the mental health system can be for families to navigate, so I reached out to Care Solace to help simplify this coordination for families, while also supporting us as district staff.”
VTPS will use Care Solace to support its mission of meeting the needs of the students, families, and staff members it serves.
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 return to in-person learning and the lasting effects of loss and grief pose new challenges for staff and families in the 2021-22 school year,” said Chad Castruita, Founder and CEO of Care Solace. “We are proud to support Voorhees Township Public Schools in prioritizing the well-being of its school community by providing timely access into mental health care and substance use treatment services.”
The Care Solace service is now available at no cost to Voorhees Township Public Schools students, staff, and their families.
