JTHS Families,  

The change in seasons can sometimes bring sadness and unexpected emotions.  We are sharing mental health resources that students and families can access while our staff is out of the office for Spring Break (March 25 to April 1). 
JTHS students, families, and staff can access free mental health services through Thriveworks.  In-person and online care is available within 3-5 days after the appointment request.  Thriveworks works with the top 4% of providers who can help with relationship issues, mental illness, grief and loss, child/adolescent/teen issues, stress, and more.  To access Thriveworks, call (855) 707-2461 or visit the Thriveworks Website.  When you call, please be prepared to provide insurance information (if available) and City of Joliet residents will need their water bill number if available.  
Care Solace 
Students, families, and staff also have access to Care Solace, a free service that quickly finds mental health, substance abuse, or marital issue treatment options.  Care Solace helps families with private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and no insurance, and is available 24/7/365 in any language.  To access Care Solace, visit the Care Solace Website or call (888) 515-0595.

Mobile Crisis Response 

The Will County Health Department & Community Health Center Mobil Crisis Response (MCR) is a program that provides mental health screening and assessment of children, adolescents, and adults prior to any admission to a hospital for inpatient psychiatric care.  MCR promotes the well-being of children by maintaining them in the least restrictive settings by working with families in their home(s) or other natural environments, providing culturally and linguistically competent services, maintaining normalizing routines and activities, allowing for earlier interventions to address growing problems.  The MCR program has a 24/7 screening schedule with a backup schedule. MCR screening services are provided 365 days per year, 24 hours per day with acceptance of all referrals from CARES on a no-decline basis. The CARES line contact information is (800) 345-9049.
