I am honored to have the opportunity to meet you and explore areas of the heart, mind, and soul with you. I have fallen in love with studying "love" since a young age.

Overview of Mental Resources in Burbank, California

Looking for a mental health professional takes time and effort, no matter where you live. However, despite the unique challenges of a region such as Burbank, California, there are experienced professionals available there who can offer you the quality mental health care you deserve.

Known of as the “Media Capitol of the World,” this suburb of Los Angeles is the headquarters for such media and entertainment luminaries as The Walt Disney Company, Warner Brothers Entertainment and Nickelodeon Animation Studios. It also has its share of parks and recreation, including the Johnny Carson Park, Griffith Park and Bette Davis Park.

While most manufacturing has left the area, the Burbank Airport was once the home of Lockheed’s Skunk Works which produced such top-secret projects as the U2 spy plane. The city was also once home to Moreland’s Motor Truck Company, aerospace supplier Menasco Manufacturing Company, and Jergens lotions and soaps.

Mental Health Statistics for Burbank California

For those living in Burbank, illegal drug use averages are about 1% lower than for the state of California. This is also reflective of the number of those who feel badly about themselves, which comes in at 20.1% vs the state average of 20.9%.

Using data from a 2001 survey, we also see that those feeling “downhearted and sad” was at 4.4%, which is above the California average of 3.8%, although those who needed help with mental health within the same year was only slightly above the state average of 15.1%.

However, despite Los Angeles County being California’s most populous county, suicide rates between 2008 and 2010 were around 8 per 100,000, which was lowest in the state.

Unfortunately, for those who felt depressed all or most of the time, or were diagnosed with a major depressive disorder, 29% did not have health insurance, and 38% reported they were unable to afford care or counseling.

Burbank’s Unique Mental Health Concerns

When it comes to causes of mental illness in Burbank, there are some weather, crime, and social economic status factors which are unique to the region, such as:

  • With its above average sunshine and temperatures, the weather in Burbank helps improve the prevalence of depression in the region. This is in contrast to colder and cloudier regions which may have a higher prevalence of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which studies show is a real factor for many.
  • In 2016, crime in the city was low at 190 incidents per 100,000 population. This is in distinct contrast to the national average of 280.5, which likely also has a positive effect on mental health in the region.
  • For 2016, the median household income in Burbank was $72,618, which was above the California State average of $67,739. Unemployment rates for the city were also lower in 2015 at 5.0% vs the state average of 5.5%. Combined, these factors likely have a positive influence on mental health in the city.

Divorce Rates

Another factor which affects mental health is divorce rate, which is only slightly higher in Burbank at 12% than the California average of 10%. This may be due to a variety of reasons, such as the higher average age (40.0  for Burbank vs the state average of 36.4), and higher average income, both of which studies show have a positive influence on marriage longevity.

Another factor with a positive influence on divorce rates in Los Angeles County is the high location quotient, or concentration of marriage counselors in the region. At 3.9, it is substantially higher than the national average of 1.

Mental Health Resources in Burbank

There are currently around 272 mental health professionals per 100,000 people in Burbank. With the total US average for psychiatrists being 7.79 per 100,000 in 2011, this points to a high number of mental health resources available in the area.

At $11,222, Los Angeles County Medicare reimbursements were also highest in the state.
