Student Assistant Program / Care Solace


RUSD believes in supporting the whole child. As part of the Student Assistance Program, school sites are provided with access to a licensed family therapist referred to as a SAP Counselor. SAP Counselors provide short term individual and group counseling, connect families and students to school and community resources, conduct classroom lessons, enhance school wide PBIS systems, provide prevention services for bullying, violence, and substance abuse, and support families through meetings, support groups, and workshops. School staff may complete referrals for students to the SAP Counselor.  Students and parents may also make referrals to SAP Counseling for social-emotional concerns including recent loss, appearing depressed, behavior, bullying, displaying signs of possible substance use or abuse, inconsistent school attendance, sudden drop in grades, family conflict or turmoil, etc. For more information or to request short term counseling for your student please speak to a site administrator.



Care Solace is available for use by RUSD students, staff, and families at no cost. CareSolace is an online resource with a live 24/7 concierge line meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health related programs and counseling services. To use Care Solace, individuals answer ten basic questions in order 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 system also filters by age, gender, zip code and special request. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. Care Solace does not require a user’s name, address, phone number, or date of birth. If you are interested in seeking counseling-related services at this time, please consider visiting
