La Grande School District is partnering with 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 is an additional wrap around support service that will first look to connect families to CHD or Grande Ronde Hospital and other local mental health networks for primary services.
Center for Human Development (CHD) in La Grande remains the primary mental health services partner for the school district. We are thankful and proud of the services that we receive with our school-based health center in our high school as well as our mental health therapists in our school buildings.
La Grande School District will use Care Solace to support its mission of Empowering Learners to Learn, Staff to Thrive, and Community to Prosper. In addition, the support of Care Solace aligns to the district’s core values of social emotional and individual well-being.
The Care Solace partnership provides an added layer of support to connect students, staff, and families to mental health and substance use treatment providers.
