For further mental health support, SDUHSD partners with CareSolace, a confidential online resource with a live 24/7 concierge line (888) 515-0595 meant to assist individuals in finding local counseling programs and services. To use Care Solace, individuals answer basic questions in order to receive a 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. Care Solace is available for use by San Dieguito staff and families at no cost. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice. Care Solace does not require a user’s name, address, phone number, or date of birth. All of the information that is entered on their platform is completely confidential and stored securely.
