Wellness Resources for Families

ReferralGPS Information

Lincoln-Way 210 is committed to creating a culture of well-being of students, staff, parents, and community. In an effort to continuously support this commitment, the district has entered an agreement with ReferralGPS.

ReferralGPS is a web-based service focused on assisting our students, staff, and community in finding local mental-health and substance use related treatment. The service compliments the district’s existing systems of support as a tool for student service teams and families to connect with treatment. Along with a searchable database of treatment options, ReferralGPS provides Care Navigation to assist families in triage, appointment setting, and follow up care.

School families may access ReferralGPS in two ways:

  1. Contact Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) – to seek out treatment options (social workers, psychologists, counselors)

  2. Visit this link at https://referralgps.com/find-help/lw210 to search for treatment resources or connect with a Care Navigator anonymously.

ReferralGPS takes into account all types of private and public insurance including PPO, HMO, Medicaid, Medicare, and families who are uninsured or underinsured. The platform also filters by age, gender, zip code, and special requests.

ReferralGPS is available for use by district students, staff, and families at no cost. All information entered on the ReferralGPS 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. If you are interested in seeking counseling-related services at this time, please consider reaching out to the Student Services team or visiting https://referralgps.com/find-help/lw210
