Who We Are
The national mental health crisis is on the rise, and unfortunately, access to mental health care is complicated and fragmented. Care Solace provides a solution by serving as a central hub of care for schools, employers, and communities.
Each year, Care Solace convenes a curated group of leaders from public, private and community organizations to focus their thinking on the mental health crisis in an effort to close the gaps.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! THE SUMMIT WAS WONDERFUL. I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed the Care Solace Mental Health Summit. The speakers were outstanding and I really enjoyed meeting all the new contacts I've made from the summit.
I loved being able to visit with my peers and hearing about what is happening in different parts of the US. I came back with some excellent ideas of how I can improve our efforts. I see mental health issues as the greatest challenge I deal with as a school leader. I welcome any help I can get from any source. This conference provided that opportunity.
I appreciate all the effort that went into the conference portion of the Summit. It was truly incredible. The networking opportunities were outstanding and how great to network amidst such great evening events!
I really liked how the summit was structured in a very productive and thoughtful way to provide meaningful discussions as well as wonderful and exciting events for both networking and fun!
