Care Solace for all Staff and Students/Families.
The attached Care Solace flyer is on our BUSD social media and district website. This free 24/7, 365 days service is purchased by our district for both BUSD Staff and BUSD Parents/Students. The Care Solace service is free, and Care Solace will hand the caller off to a provider that may or may not charge a fee. The caller can make that decision to go forward, and the Care Solace person will guide them along the way.
Anyone in our district can call in to Care Solace and they will receive assistance. Again, Care Solace does not provide the counseling/therapy, but they do a warm handoff with the parent, to the provider. This service has not replaced our EASE program for employees. We still have that available.
