Garden Grove Unified School District is pleased to announce a new partnership with Care Solace to increase access to mental health support for the district’s approximately 41,000 students and their families as well as its 5,000 employees. Care Solace provides a 24/7 concierge service and easy-to-use web platform to support GGUSD students, families, and staff through the process of finding individualized mental health support to meet each unique need. Care Solace’s support is available for use by district students, families, and staff at no cost.

“Earlier this year, our Board of Education approved a resolution launching a Choose Wellness campaign to increase awareness and access to mental health support; in the face of a global pandemic, these goals are more important now than ever before,” said Walter Muneton, Board of Education president. “We want to make it as easy as possible for our community to find help during this challenging time and Care Solace has that expertise.”

Care Solace is ready to support our GGUSD family as Chad Castruita, founder of Care Solace explained, “By partnering with a mission-driven school district like Garden Grove Unified, we’re paving a new path forward to connect students to verified community-based resources in times of need. There are many barriers that make it difficult for schools and families to get mental healthcare. We want to lift that burden so they can focus on what’s most important – getting well.”

Individuals who are interested in contacting Care Solace for support may call (888) 515-0595 to speak with a member of the concierge team. Individuals may also visit to answer ten easy questions to receive an extensive list of mental health care providers to meet each individual need and insurance coverage. Care Solace takes into account all types of private insurance including Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare as well as those without insurance. The platform filters by age, gender, zip code and special request.

Choosing Wellness in GGUSD is important and Care Solace will be a great partner to connect individuals in need to support.
