Care Solace

Dear Milan Area Schools Families, 

Navigating mental health services for a child or family member, scheduling appointments, and navigating the cost of insurance can be overwhelming. In order to support our students, families, and staff, Milan Area Schools has partnered with Care Solace, a confidential service focused on removing barriers to accessing mental health care. This collaboration provides school district families and staff with access to Care Solace's care coordination services at no cost to families or staff. 

Care Solace streamlines communication and coordination to connect individuals with the right resources and appropriate level of care. With a team of more than 500 dedicated Care Companions, Care Solace connects Milan Area Schools to over 420,000 licensed mental health and substance use treatment providers. These Care Companions navigate the fragmented mental health care system on behalf of individuals, helping them find the perfect fit for their unique needs and insurance requirements. 

Families can connect with Care Solace via a staff referral, or may request assistance directly from Care Solace. Once a referral begins, Care Solace will work with the student, family, or staff member to help identify a local mental health provider that meets their needs, schedule an appointment with the provider, help navigate the insurance/payment requirements, and provide follow-up services. All of this information and actions taken after the referral are strictly confidential and not accessible by MAS.  

Included with this message are two introductory flyers and an explanation of what to expect after connecting with Care Solace. If you have any questions about this service after reviewing these resources, please explore the Care Solace site at or contact a district counselor or social worker.
