News Release
GBSD Families can more easily access mental health and substance use treatment providers thanks to new partnership - 09/21/21

Gresham-Barlow School District partners with Care Solace to provide support for families and staff in finding community-based providers who can meet their needs

The Gresham-Barlow School District is partnering with Care Solace to expand access to community mental health and substance use treatment providers for the district’s families and school staff. Care Solace provides a Care Companion™ team who can quickly and confidentially find available providers in the community. Families and staff will also be able to access the Care Solace online tool to anonymously search for community-based providers.

“We are committed to the well-being of our students and staff as we work to create a safe and healthy learning environment,” said Superintendent James Hiu. “This new partnership will help our families and school staff easily find mental health care providers in the community equipped to meet their 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 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 the Gresham-Barlow School District  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 Gresham-Barlow students, staff, and their families. For more information about Care Solace, please visit
