SolanoConnex, a new free web-app, is designed to help expand access to mental and emotional health resources
November 9, 2021
SOLANO COUNTY – Solano County officials, in partnership with Touro University, is pleased to announce the launch of SolanoConnex, a new web-app that lists more than 100 mental and emotional health services available throughout Solano County. The web-app is free, easy-to-use, includes live support and is available in three languages, including English, Spanish and Tagalog.
“This web-app is a resource that anyone can use, whether you are a parent looking for emotional support, or someone experiencing feelings of depression and anxiety,” said Dr. Sarah Sweitzer, Provost and Chief Academic Officer, Touro University, California. “We are so pleased to have partnered with Solano County on finding a way to increase access to mental health services.”
SolanoConnex is a 3-year project managed by Touro University, California, with funding provided by the Solano County Board of Supervisors. SolanoConnex is designed to improve access to mental and emotional health resources for all residents in Solano County. This project is in response to findings from a 2018 Human Services Needs Assessment, a survey that showed nearly half of all people who seek help for mental health conditions never gain access the services they need.
To access the SolanoConnex web-app, visit https://SolanoConnex on a smartphone, computer, tablet, or any device with internet access. Simply click on the type of service(s) you are looking for and providers will be listed in order of proximity to your location. Services are verified on a regular basis. Additionally, mental health navigators are available by text, email and phone to assist in accessing services, including guiding residents through the web-app and helping them find appropriate services based on their needs.
Providers who are interested in being listed in the app can contact [email protected].
