Solano County officials in partnership with Touro University announced the launch of SolanoConnex, a new web application that lists more than 100 mental and emotional health services available throughout Solano County. The app is free, includes live support and is available in 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,” Provost and Chief Academic Officer at Touro University, Sarah Sweitzer, said. “We are so pleased to have partnered with Solano County on finding a way to increase access to mental health services.”

SolanoConnex is a three-year project managed by Touro University 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.com on a smartphone, computer, tablet or any device with internet access. Services are verified on a regular basis. 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 SolanoConnex@gmail.com.
