Channelview ISD Selects Care Solace for Mental Healthcare Services


Students can’t learn if they aren’t supported mentally, physically and academically, and staff can’t help if they don’t have access to the right resources. Partnering with Care Solace will help us bridge this gap and offer quality, trusted mental healthcare resources to our community.

Channelview Independent School District (ISD) has selected Care Solace, an organization determined to calm the chaos of mental healthcare coordination, to extend access to mental health care and resources for families and staff. Care Solace equips school districts with a web-based tool that makes it easier to connect with both community-based and virtual mental healthcare providers and programs.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Care Solace, and know this partnership will benefit our community in a very unique way,” said Greg Ollis, Superintendent at Channelview ISD. “Mental health is not something that should be taken lightly, and we are now able to offer our staff, teachers, parents, and students an outlet for them to seek the help they need.”

Located in an unincorporated area outside of Houston, Texas, 80 percent of Channelview ISD students are economically disadvantaged (TAPR, 2019). Limited community-based care resources and an increased demand for student and staff mental healthcare led the school district to seek additional support through Care Solace.

With Care Solace, families and staff gain access to a dedicated Care Concierge team, with experts available around-the-clock to guide users through processes related to insurance, provider availability, wait times and scheduling. Care Solace’s care navigation system uses proprietary technology and a vast database of behavioral and mental healthcare resources to find carefully vetted therapists and programs in minutes.

“Students can’t learn if they aren’t supported mentally, physically and academically, and staff can’t help if they don’t have access to the right resources,” said Karen Bryant, Ed.D, Director of Testing, Counseling, 504, RTI, and Dyslexia at Channelview ISD. “Partnering with Care Solace will help us bridge this gap and offer quality, trusted mental healthcare resources to our community.”

More than 90,000 school staff and parents at partnering school communities of Care Solace used the pre-screening tool, with at least 40,000 students receiving mental healthcare support as a result. Care Solace has facilitated an estimated 4,500 crisis interventions.

“Creating a healthy environment for learning in the 2020-21 school year has arguably never been more challenging for staff and families,” said Chad Castruita, founder of Care Solace. “We are proud to support Channelview ISD in prioritizing the wellbeing of its school community by providing timely access into mental healthcare services.”

Care Solace is now available to Channelview ISD families and staff. For more information about Care Solace, please visit https://home.caresolace.com/.

About Care Solace

The organization’s web-based system works alongside multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) as a tool for school staff and families to connect with community-based mental healthcare resources and providers. The proprietary care navigation system taps into a vast database of mental healthcare resources to find carefully vetted local therapists and programs in minutes. In 2019, more than 80,000 school staff and parents used the Care Solace pre-screening tool. At least 30,000 students received mental healthcare support as a result.

AllKindsofTherapy.com Expands to U.S. Boarding Schools


The only independent website where families & young adults find the facts & compare side-by-side treatment to transition.

allkindsoftherapy.com

Every stage of the recovery process is crucial for a student, including the transition from a therapeutic environment into a mainstream school. Small boarding schools offer subtle but critical structures to ensure student success

These initial boarding schools are all nationally accredited for their academics and are non-profit boarding schools. The boarding schools who are partnering with allkindsoftherapy.com are primarily focused on being a boarding community with few, if any, day students. Adding traditional boarding schools to All Kinds of Therapy furthers the mission of providing the facts in an easy to understand way for parents investigating the continuum of care for teens and young adults in treatment. “Google reported in 2019 that 7% of daily searches are healthcare-related and families who are searching for niche information about teen treatment and young adult treatment are staying for 2 minutes to find the facts on allkindsoftherapy.com,” said Jenney Wilder, M.S.Ed., owner of the website.

According to the Association of Boarding Schools, there are 198 traditional boarding schools in the United States. There is a subset of boarding schools that entertain the application of a student who successfully completed a treatment program. This cohort of schools has smaller student populations, intentional ways of creating a community for their whole school, and sometimes have an expert clinician or specific diagnosis that transition or integrate into their community. These specialized boarding schools utilize strong Advisor/Advisee relationships, small classes, and various other types of academic and emotional supports to assist all their students’ continued success and growth. “Listing our facts on allkindsoftherapy.com’s new section for specialized boarding schools allows us to connect with a valued demographic among our prospective students and families,” said Matthew Woodhall, Head of Woodhall School in Connecticut. He went on to explain, “Students who have made demonstrable progress in a therapeutic milieu, possess a keener self-awareness and freshly developed coping skills, which in turn provide a solid foundation for them to build upon their personal, academic, and co-curricular success in our school community.”

“Every stage of the recovery process is crucial for a student, including the transition from a therapeutic environment into a mainstream school. Small boarding schools offer subtle but critical structures to ensure student success, and parsing out these characteristics cannot always be found in most online directories or school-based websites,” said Holly McGlennon Treat, M.Ed., Director of Boarding School Advising at The Bertram Group in Westport, CT. Allkindsoftherapy.com provides easy to understand information that will help families compare all levels of treatment to transition programming for teens and young adults. The therapeutic process is not a straight line. Whether a parent is searching online for the the right clinician, intervention, family coach, therapeutic consultant, psychologist, takes time and trust to go through the process.

###

About All Kinds of Therapy

Launched in 2015, allkindsoftherapy.com is a web-based platform that focuses on interventions, assessment, and varying types of treatment to transition programming for ages 30 and under. All the advertisers on the website must answer revealing facts about their treatment model, clinicians’ training, licensing, etc, and offer a level of transparency, unlike any other online treatment, boarding school, or professional directory. The web platform allows the visitor to compare side-by-side, residential options, boarding schools. The professionals listed in the ‘Expert section’ are parent coaches, tele-therapy, tele-assessment, therapeutic consultants who reveal details about their practice. The monthly blog allows parents to learn the questions to ask when hiring professionals or enrolling their child and gather a greater understanding of a dynamic Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare industry.

World Parkinson Coalition® Welcomes New Board Member


I have personally experienced the challenges of living with Young Onset Parkinson’s and I understand the inequities of care for people with Parkinson’s across the globe

The World Parkinson Coalition (WPC) announced the appointment of a new member to its Board of Directors. Drawing on her incredible advocacy work in the Parkinson’s space, and her commitment to raising awareness about Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease and about Parkinson’s across the African continent, Omotola Thomas, MS joined the WPC Board as of September 2020.

The WPC hosts the most unique international conference in the Parkinson’s space. Every three years the WPC brings together basic scientists, neurologists, general physicians, nurses, rehab specialists, clinicians, as well as people with Parkinson’s (PwP) and their caregivers. The WPC’s mission is to get experts out of their silos to connect with others to better understand how to advance the clinical and basic science of Parkinson’s to not only expedite the discovery of new treatments, but also to better understand the purpose and impact of new treatments and when and how to use them. “Board members play a major role in steering the work of the WPC, so we are thrilled to announce Ms. Thomas’ appointment as our newest board member”, said Elizabeth Pollard, WPC Executive Director.

Omotola Thomas, MS is the founder of Parkinson’s Africa – an association committed to improving access to information, education, research, and healthcare for Africans affected by Parkinson’s disease. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2016, at the age of 35. Born and raised in Nigeria, she has also lived in the United States, South Africa, and most recently, England. She hold a bachelor’s degree in Systems Engineering and a master’s degree in Project Management from the George Washington University.

Omotola is currently serving as a patient advocate for the International Parkinson’s Disease Genomics Consortium (IPDGC) Africa; and as an ambassador for the 6th World Parkinson Congress to be held in Barcelona in 2022. She is also a founding member of PD Avengers – an international group of advocates determined to end Parkinson’s. An active writer and story teller, she chronicles her Parkinson’s journey via her blog, ParkinStand® helping to inspire other PD advocates on their own journeys.

“I have personally experienced the challenges of living with Young Onset Parkinson’s and I understand the inequities of care for people with Parkinson’s across the globe. Not only are health care systems serving people differently, the deep misunderstanding of Parkinson’s at a basic level leads to great inequities in care. I am honored to be invited to join the WPC Board of Directors and look for to the great work we have ahead of us”, said Thomas.

“Adding Ms. Thomas to the Board of Directors is wonderful for the WPC and community,” said WPC President, Dr. Marie-Françoise Chesselet, UCLA Professor Emerita. “Her dedication to raising awareness of Parkinson’s across the African continent and her passion to educate the community about what it means to live with Young Onset Parkinson’s is an inspiration to us all, and will help provide fresh insight to our organization as we continue to make great progress in our mission.”

A complete list of the WPC Board of Directors is available at http://www.worldpdcoalition.org/board

The Right Step DFW Announces The Addition of Adolescent Residential Programming


Adolescent Program at The Right Step DFW

R.I.S.E Adolescent Program at The Right Step DFW

It is our hope to fill the void in adolescent treatment here in the Dallas, Fort Worth area…When we show up for them at an early age, we have the ability to break the cycle before it’s too late.

The Right Step DFW, a well-established addiction and mental health treatment center, has added a youth specific program for adolescent males ages 13-17 known as Regaining Independence & Sober Education (R.I.S.E.). By adding R.I.S.E, The Right Step DFW hopes to inspire teen boys to transform their harmful behaviors before reaching adulthood. Through comprehensive staff training, utilization of the Seven Challenges® curriculum and facility renovations, The Right Step DFW has taken purposeful steps to accommodate the needs of their incoming adolescent clients.

Young people, especially male teens, are more susceptible to the influences of drugs and alcohol through peer pressure, academic pressure or coping with mental health disorders such as trauma, depression or anxiety. Studies show that young individuals who begin abusing substances such as drugs and alcohol at a young age are more likely to continue these habits into adulthood and can progress into destructive addictive behaviors. The R.I.S.E program at The Right Step DFW uses the Seven Challenges® curriculum, which consists of comprehensive, evidence-based treatment that is tailored specifically to young minds in order to motivate teen clients toward healthier lifestyle choices. Traditional drug treatment models have little effect on teens, but this curriculum offers a unique approach to adolescent treatment by allowing young clients to evaluate their addiction and discover how to successfully change their lives. The foundation of the R.I.S.E. program utilizes relationship building practices, integrates key family healing components and creates a trusting environment for each teen client to heal.

“It is our hope to fill the void in adolescent treatment here in the Dallas, Fort Worth area,” noted Charles Fry, Director of Clinical Operations with The Right Step DFW. “The kids we work with are our future leaders. When we show up for them at an early age, we have the ability to break the cycle before it’s too late. We want to invest in them because we know that they will be the people who will go on to change the world.”

The Right Step DFW is working to make this treatment as accessible as possible by accepting most major insurances and providing care for adolescent males with secondary, co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety. Through this program, The Right Step DFW hopes to help empower Texas male teens to overcome their negative behavior patterns and live full, successful lives.
