Dear Gridley Families,
The Gridley Unified School District fosters a culture that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of students, and parents. In an effort to continuously support this commitment, the District has approved an agreement with Care Solace.

Care Solace is an online resource with a live 24/7 concierge line meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health-related programs and counseling services. To use Care Solace, individuals answer ten basic questions in order to receive an extensive list of referrals to applicable care providers. Care Solace takes into account all types of private insurance including Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare, and those that have no insurance. The system also filters by age, gender, zip code and special request.

Care Solace is now available for use by Gridley students and families at no cost. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. Care Solace does not require a user’s name, address, phone number, or date of birth. All of the information that is entered in on their platform is completely confidential and stored securely.
