Dear Parents and Students,
As Thanksgiving and the holidays approach, sometimes this can bring sadness and unexpected emotions. We are sending a reminder that mental health resources are available to our students and families. If social/emotional support is needed, we urge the parent/guardian, family member, or student to reach out to their School Counselor or complete the request for support HERE. Completion of this form initiates a request, and a team of school support personnel will review the situation to assign appropriate support. Please be as specific as possible when completing the form.
In addition, though a partnership with the Joliet Fire Department, the City of Joliet, and the use of district ESSER relief funds, mental health services are provided to all JTHS students and families at no cost 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 website HERE. When you call, please be prepared to provide insurance information (if available) and City of Joliet residents will need their water bill number as well.
Students and families 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 their website HERE or call (888) 515-0595 at any time.
Care Solace and Thrive Works are not emergency response services. In the event of a life-threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1, or use the National Suicide Hotline by calling or texting 988.
There are also community support resources posted to our website HERE for situations such as grief and loss, suicide prevention, mental health, addiction, and more.
Please reach out if help is needed. We are here to provide support.
