An Overview of Mental Health in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma is part of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area. Broken Arrow is the fourth-largest city in Oklahoma and the second-fastest growing city in the state. There are many legends as to how this city got such an unusual name, but it is commonly accepted that the term “Broken Arrow” is related to Native American tribes that lived in the area in past centuries. Broken Arrow was officially founded in 1902.

This major suburb of Tulsa is known for its retail options, workforce development, and cutting-edge manufacturing businesses, according to the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce.

Broken Arrow also offers plenty of historic sites, recreation, dining, entertainment, and access to a variety of affordable healthcare options — especially for mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia.

Poverty and Mental Illness in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

As of July 2017, Broken Arrow had 108,303 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The poverty level for Broken Arrow is 8%, which is about half of the state average of 15.8% and substantially lower than the U.S. average of 12.3%.

However, 12.5% of Broken Arrow residents under the age of 65 do not have health insurance.

Therefore, finances could still present a significant challenge to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma 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 anxiety, 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 Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

According to a report from the American Psychological Association, Oklahoma has only 325 active psychologists. This is one of the lowest numbers in the United States. Consequently, many of the 700,000 to 950,000 adults in need of mental health and/or substance abuse recovery services are not receiving them, according to a report from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

According to SAMHSA’s Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma children ages 12-17 in 2013-2014 was 10.3% — nearly one percentage point lower than the U.S. average of 11% for the same period. The average for serious mental illnesses among Oklahoma adults in 2013-2014 was 4.4% — a fraction of a percentage point higher than the national average of 4.2%.

However, these statistics could be at least partially misleading. The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services notes that the state has the third-highest rate of mental illness prevalence and the second-highest rate of substance abuse prevalence in the United States.

Mental Health Resources for Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

According to a SAMHSA online search engine, there are not any providers of mental health or substance abuse treatment in Broken Arrow. The closest options are in Tulsa (approximately three miles away). SAMHSA lists 14 mental health care providers for adults and children in Tulsa and 21 options for substance abuse treatment.

Some of the inpatient and outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment services available in Tulsa offer low-cost or free treatment to people with low income and/or no insurance. It is always worth asking for payment options, even if you have health insurance and/or a steady job.
