Care Solace Story 


We are tireless allies on a mission to make accessing mental health care easier than ever before.

What We Believe



We create connections

By being human driven and technology supported, we connect people and systems for the better. 


We empower people

Both those seeking help and those providing help – to connect to the support they need. 


We are allies

We meet people where they are, guide them in their journey, and stand by them no matter what it takes. 


Our Story

As millions of Americans do each year, our Founder & CEO, Chad Castruita, faced mental health and substance use challenges and experienced firsthand how challenging it is to access quality care. In recovery, Chad reflected on how the right help was essential to turning his life around. He was determined to make accessing care easier and less painful for people experiencing similar struggles and founded Care Solace in 2015.
Care Solace connects people in the U.S. to the support they need, anytime, anywhere. Our goal is to break the stigma surrounding mental health and offer every community educational prevention resources, provide prompt, compassionate support when necessary, and build resilience for long-term stability and health. We are determinedly working toward destigmatizing mental health issues and enabling everyone to get the mental health care they need — and deserve.
