Mental Health Resources 2022


District 303 has contracted with ReferralGPS, an organization that enables families to use a searchable database of local mental health and substance abuse-related treatment resources. ReferralGPS:

  • provides Care Navigation to assist families in researching and obtaining an appointment
  • can be accessed by District 303 students, staff and families at no cost
  • is completely confidential and securely stored
  • is an optional resource that families are not required to access
  • is available throughout the summer months and will be utilized by Student Support Teams in the fall

ReferralGPS Continued:

  • filters information based on a mental health concern, clinician gender/specialty, location, and insurance acceptance
  • is available for all types of private and public insurance options including PPO, HMO, Medicaid
  • provides options for families who are uninsured or underinsured

To search for treatment resources or connect with a Care Navigator anonymously, families may access ReferralGPS by utilizing this link: https://referralgps.com//find-help/D303

Fox Valley Mental Health Advocacy Council

The Fox Valley Mental Health Advocacy Council is dedicated to ensuring a positive change of perception of mental illness and related issues, improving early identification and intervention, and enhancing the quality and simplifying the accessibility of support systems.

Comprised of local mental health professionals, school personnel, and other community members, the Fox Valley Mental Health Advocacy Council formed as a result of recommendations from the 2013 St. Charles District 303 Summit on Mental Health.

The 2013 Summit highlighted the need to combat stigma and expand awareness and access to mental health services.

Since that time, the Council has become an independent organization and has expanded to include the Tri-Cities (St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia) and surrounding communities.
