In 2014, there were approximately 780 residents per mental health provider in Linn County. Throughout the county, the percentage of mental health conditions increased as the population aged. Here are the percentages of mental health conditions in Linn County:

  • 2% of children aged 0 to 17
  • 8% of young adults aged 18 to 25
  • 9% of adults 26 and older

Among leading mental health issues in Albany, suicide, depression, and bullying are common issues that affect residents throughout the city and Linn County. The County reported 17 deaths by suicide per 100,000 persons, which ranks it as a higher cause of death than car crashes in the county. As the ninth cause of death throughout Oregon, suicide is a serious mental health problem in the state.

Bullying among youth is a mental health issue that has been linked to depression, heart disease, suicide, partner violence, and alcoholism. In Linn County, 28.7% of 8th grade students reported being bullied within 30 days. Bullying can severely impact a young individual’s mental health. Many individuals who are bullied remain silent about the experience, making it difficult for friends, family, and professionals to intervene and give them the assistance they need.

Local Mental Health Factors

There are several factors experienced in Albany, Oregon that can contribute to mental health issues. Some common factors that can contribute to mental health issues include tobacco use, alcohol use, bullying, drug use, and poverty.

Approximately 4.2% of Linn County live in the 20th percentile of income. Poverty not only increases stress about basic amenities but can hinder individuals from connecting with relevant health and mental health resources. Low-income women are twice as likely to suffer from depressive symptoms as high-income women. Individuals currently smoking are 50% more likely to suffer depressive symptoms.

Oregon is particularly affected by substance abuse. 9.55% of the adolescent population is estimated to have a substance use disorder. Not only is substance abuse strongly linked with suicide and other mental disorders, it can be used as a self-medication for depression and thoughts of suicide.

Alcohol use in youth is higher in Linn County than statewide. Approximately 15% of 8th graders in the county have consumed at least one alcoholic beverage, compared to only 12% statewide. Similarly, 8% of those surveyed had consumed five or more alcoholic beverages on one occasion, compared to only 5% statewide.

Unfortunately, no factor can accurately predict mental illness. Many individuals who struggle with mental health issues are dealing with one or more of these factors, while many affluent individuals who aren’t struggling with addiction are also struggling. Use these factors, but look for other signs of depression, thoughts of suicide, or other mental health risks, and don’t hesitate to ask for help or reach out to a loved one.
