An Overview of Mental Health in Boulder, Colorado

Boulder, Colorado is a picturesque city in the Rocky Mountains. Boulder is known for having at least 300 days of sunshine each year and a temperate climate — the coldest it usually gets is about 45 degrees Fahrenheit in January and the hottest temperature is generally around 87 degrees in July. Sweaters are still often required on summer nights; Boulder’s altitude of 5,430 feet above sea level can make the evenings rather cool. The city gets an average of 89 inches of snowfall each year.

Boulder offers plenty of scenery, recreation, entertainment, and access to a variety of affordable healthcare options — especially for mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia.

Poverty and Mental Illness in Boulder, Colorado

As of July 2017, Boulder had 107,125 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The poverty level for Boulder is 22%, which is more than twice as high as the state average of 10.3% and substantially higher than the U.S. average of 12.3%.

Therefore, finances could present a challenge to Boulder, Colorado residents seeking mental health care services.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), poverty worsens the symptoms of serious mental illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Poverty also makes it more likely that a person will experience a serious mental illness. Finally, anyone who has a mental health condition such as depression or schizophrenia is more likely to end up living in poverty after symptoms begin to appear. This applies to people of all education levels and professions.

Mental Health Statistics for Boulder, Colorado

According to a report from the American Psychological Association, Colorado has nearly 1,900 active psychologists. This indicates how pervasive the problem of mental illness is among people throughout the state.

According to SAMHSA’s Colorado Behavioral Health Barometer for 2015, the state has mental illness prevalence rates that are nearly identical to the national average. The percentage of major depressive episodes among Colorado children ages 12-17 in 2013-2014 was 11.7% — close to one percentage point higher than the U.S. average of 11% for the same period. The average for serious mental illnesses among Colorado adults in 2013-2014 was 3.7% —half a percentage point lower than the national average of 4.2%.

However, another report from the non-profit advocacy group Mental Health America claims that Colorado is one of the worst states in the country as far as the prevalence of mental illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorder. Additional SAMHSA data notes that nearly 20% of Colorado residents have some type of mental illness; this is the third-highest rate in the United States. Substance abuse is also significantly high among Colorado youth, though despite Colorado’s lenient laws on marijuana fewer adolescents are experimenting with marijuana nowadays.

The good news is that Mental Health America ranked Colorado number 17 in terms of offering mental health care and number 8 in terms of the number of people with mental illness who have health insurance.
