Enhancing Mental Health at SSFUSD

South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD) fosters a culture that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of students, parents and staff.
In an effort to continuously support this commitment, the district has partnered with Care Solace and Daybreak Health.

Care Solace

Care Solace is an online resource with a live 24/7 concierge meant to assist individuals in finding local, mental health-related programs and counseling services.
Care Solace is a tool for school staff and families to connect with community-based, mental health care resources and providers.
Their proprietary care navigation system taps into a vast database of mental health care resources to find carefully vetted local therapists and programs in minutes.
Care Solace is now available for use by district families and staff at no cost.
Care Solace does not require a name, address, phone number, or date of birth. All information entered on the Care Solace tool is completely confidential and securely stored.
Please note: this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way.
Care Solace is NOT an emergency response service or mental health services provider. In the event of a life threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1 or the National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255.
If you are interested in seeking counseling-related services at this time, please consider visiting www.caresolace.com/ssfusd.
School district families and staff may access Care Solace services in two ways:
  1. Call 1-888-515-0595 24/7 to speak with someone from your Concierge team.

  2. Visit your custom district link: www.caresolace.com/ssfusd.

  3. Answer ten easy questions 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 platform also filters by age, gender, zip code and special request.

Daybreak Health

Daybreak Health partners with youth, families, and schools to create personalized, easily accessible, and affordable mental health programs.
At SSFUSD, Daybreak Health has organized free webinars throughout the year to help parents better understand what kind of developmental and behavioral changes their children might be going through and how best to support them.
