An Overview of Mental Health in Berwyn, Illinois

Poor mental health can affect nearly anyone, from young children to elderly individuals. Disorders that stem from depression and anxiety are on the rise in America, and nearly 20% of adults have experienced these problems. Those who suffer may not realize the commonality of such issues and might be ashamed or feel guilty about their disorder. This could cause them to hesitate when it comes to seeking treatment; however, help is out there, including for those who are living with mental illness in Berwyn, Illinois

Population and Mental Illness in Berwyn

56,693 people are living in Berwyn, with the male and female populace being nearly equal. The city is not the largest in Illinois, and the population has seen a slight decrease in recent years. The majority of people living in Berwyn are of Hispanic descent, followed by whites. There is also a small Asian population in the city.

Berwyn offers a variety of mental health services to its populace. Many clinics, doctors, and private therapists treat problems that include:

  • Clinical depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Mood disorders

There are 314 mental health professionals per every 100,00 residents living in Cook County, where Berwyn is located. Because of the population’s recent decline and the overall number of treatment professionals available, the city’s residents have more options than other, larger cities when it comes to finding help for their mental illness.

Economical Factors and Mental Illness in Berwyn

There are many employment industries in Berwyn, from the educational sector to retail. The most common industry is healthcare, with over 14% of employers in town focused on this field. There are not many professional or technological jobs available in Berwyn, and only about a quarter of the population received any education beyond earning a high school diploma.

Manufacturing jobs often mean long shifts, a required weekly output, and, in some cases, a daily commute that is both stressful and exhausting. These circumstances could be causing or worsening some mental illnesses, such as depression, as some of Berwyn’s residents face the daily grind and the responsibilities that come with raising a family.

Wage Inequality and Unemployment in Mental Illness in Berwyn

Berwyn’s unemployment rate is 3.3%, which is significantly higher than the national average. This elevated number of unemployed individuals might be contributing to the city’s poverty levels, which impacts young male children and both sexes aged 24-44. Hispanic and Latino individuals are much more likely to suffer from poverty than whites in the city.

Wage inequality may be contributing to mental illness among Berwyn’s female population. Men make more annually than women in almost every industry the city has to offer, but especially in the retail and commercial trucking sector. This wage gap may contribute to financial troubles in households run by single mothers and trigger mental illnesses stemming from issues such as:

  • Anxiety over how to provide for their children
  • Depression over being unable to advance at their jobs
  • Mood swings and periods of mental instability as mental health deteriorates

The Challenge of Finding Mental Health Services in Berwyn

Clinics and other medical centers in Berwyn offer both inpatient and outpatient services for those who need treatment for their mental health problems. However, those who suffer from depression, anxiety, and mood disorders may have trouble reaching these facilities. From crippling physical disabilities to a lack of health insurance, there are many obstacles.

11% of people in the city are without health insurance, and not all residents may be able to access proper coverage from their jobs. This can be especially problematic for those who only work part-time and do not qualify for benefits under the regulations of their employer. In addition, those who cannot afford to keep a vehicle may have trouble reaching help, especially if they live in an area where public transportation may not be available. Those in Berwyn who are physically disabled may also not be able to find transportation, especially the area’s veterans.
