Princeton Independent School District Selects Care Solace for Mental Health Care Coordination Services

Partnership provides added layer of support to connect students, staff and families to mental health and substance use treatment providers.

PRINCETON, TX (Aug. 7, 2023) – Princeton Independent School District selected Care Solace, an organization determined to calm the chaos of mental health care coordination, to expand access to community mental health and substance use treatment providers for students, staff and their families.

Care Solace provides a Care Companion team that can quickly and confidentially find available providers in the community. The organization also equips school systems with a customized online tool that gives community members a way to anonymously search for community-based providers matched to their needs.

"We are pleased to partner with Care Solace for these essential services for anyone connected to Princeton ISD, which includes students and their families, as well as staff and their families," said Wendy Cain, PISD director of mental and physical wellness. "They now have access to someone who can support them in navigating through personal issues related to their mental and physical health."

Princeton Independent School District will use Care Solace to support its mission “to inspire and enable each student to achieve his or her full potential.”

With Care Solace, families and staff gain access to a dedicated Care Companion to navigate the mental health care system on their behalf, calling providers to find the right fit and availability. They help families with private insurance, Medicaid and no insurance, and are available 24/7 365 days a year in any language.

Care Solace’s care navigation system uses proprietary technology and a vast database of behavioral and mental health care resources to find carefully verified therapists and programs in minutes.

"The effects of loss, isolation, uncertainty and fatigue brought on by the pandemic continue to pose new challenges for students, staff and their families," said Chad Castruita, founder and CEO of Care Solace. "We are proud to support Princeton Independent School District in prioritizing the well-being of its school community by providing timely access into mental health care and substance use treatment services.”

The Care Solace service is now available at no cost to Princeton Independent School District students, staff and their families. For more information about Care Solace, visit
