CareSolace is an online resource meant to assist individuals in finding local counseling-related services. To use CareSolace, individuals answer ten basic questions in order to receive an extensive list of referrals to applicable care providers. CareSolace takes into account all types of private insurance, as well as Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare when generating a list of referrals. If uninsured, CareSolace will also identify nearby care providers that allow individuals to pay out-of-pocket for services.


CareSolace is available for use by PYLUSD students, staff, and families at no cost. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. CareSolace does not require a user’s name, address, phone number, or date of birth.
