SOLACE COUNSELING // MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS
Amanda Wurst opened the doors to Solace Counseling with the mission of de-stigmatizing mental health, creating affordable and easy access to mental health care and establishing connections and partnerships with the Erie community. Our group is so named to help provide solace, comfort, and healing in times of darkness.
Fast forward into our 5th year of operating, there are now 7 of us in the group and we have not veered from our mission. We are honored to have been chosen by Erie Gives Back as the beneficiary of the Mom Prom 2023 fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised will be placed into the H.E.A.L. grant that Solace Counseling will use to administer funds to residents and students of Erie to receive no-cost mental health services through our group practice, as well as other local mental health providers, as long as the grant funds remain available. Each recipient of H.E.A.L. (Helping Erie Access Light) funds will be able to access any one of the following at no-cost, in an effort to promote each community member’s wellness journey toward tracking their own Light:
A minimum of 2 individual sessions (adult, child or adolescent)
A minimum of 2 couple’s therapy sessions
A minimum of 2 family therapy sessions
8 group therapy sessions (equivalent to an entire group series)
All new inquiries to Solace Counseling will be automatically screened for eligibility to access the H.E.A.L. funds as long as funds remain available. Solace Counseling will also help facilitate the use of these funds at other mental health practices within Erie, and will be working with other local providers to ensure residents of Erie are able to access no-cost care at other practices as long as funds are available. As funds are utilized, we will share information regarding how many residents were able to benefit from this fundraiser!
