Overview of Mental Health Resources in Arvada, Colorado

Arvada is a tiny city in Colorado. It is only 32 square miles and has a population of about 110,000 people. The poverty level is very low and the median income is high. Property values are extremely high in Arvada. It is one of those cities where you can either afford to live there, or you are going to struggle.

The city is not culturally diverse – almost 90% of the people in Arvada are white. This means if you are a minority, things may be difficult for you in this city. Out of the households, over 30% have young children and 55% of the couples are married. Unlike many other cities we look at, the average age is much higher at 40 years old.

The median household income is only $72,000. The average property is worth close to $300,000 and the poverty level is only 7%.

Mental Health Statistics for Arvada

Surprisingly, Arvada is in the midst of a mental health crisis. For a small city without serious financial issues, Arvada has more than its share of mental health issues. There is such a lack of resources, the Arvada Police Department gets over 500 calls a year for mental health issues.

In order to respond to the mental health crisis, the police department has added two mental health professionals to their staff. They said without them, they would be ill equipped to deal with the issues that confront them every day.

Impact of Not Receiving Treatment in Arvada, Colorado

The lack of mental health resources is a serious problem in Arvada. The part that doesn’t make sense is that there are over 250 mental health professionals in the city. The issue is that people don’t know how to access these resources. This is why they rely on services like the police and fire departments to handle mental health emergencies.

One other reason people don’t access mental health assistance is because people aren’t comfortable seeking mental health assistance through their insurance.

A lack of mental health resources can lead to:

  • Suicide
  • Divorce
  • Criminal activity
  • Homelessness
  • Unemployment
  • Worsened mental health issues
  • Substance abuse

If people have better access to mental health information, they may not be so reluctant to seek out help.

What Makes Arvada Unique When It Comes to Mental Health?

Arvada is situated in a beautiful part of the country. They enjoy a seasonal climate and are set upon a picturesque landscape.

  • Climate: Arvada is outside of Denver and is a very seasonal climate. It is known as the humid part of the continent. It is very cold in the winter and very humid in the summer.
  • Economic: The median household income is $72,000. Salaries are high and the poverty level is low at just 7%.
  • Culture: Arvada is an older town. There aren’t any transients or college students. Most people who live in Arvada are married with kids or are part of a household. There are very few minorities with over 90% of the population being white.

Divorce Rate in Arvada, Colorado

Colorado has one of the lowest divorce rates in the country at just 4%. In fact, the divorce rate is on the decline still. Over 50% of the households in Arvada are made up of married couples.

One reason the divorce rate is so low is because people in Arvada tend to have higher education levels. They also get married later in life (the average marriage rate in Colorado is 29.) People who get married later in life tend to stay married longer.

Mental Health Resources in Arvada

There are plenty of mental health professionals in Arvada, Colorado. There are over 250 mental health professionals in the city. However, since there are so many older people in the city, they don’t take advantage of the plethora of mental health resources.

Older people tend to be reluctant to seek out mental health services. They are of a generation that believes there is a stigma attached to mental health issues. If these people had access to information in a secure and private setting, they would be more liable to seek out help.
