An Overview of Mental Health in Burnsville, Minnesota

Sitting just over 20 miles from the state capitol of St. Paul, Burnsville is a thriving city in the northwestern section of Minnesota’s Dakota County. Estimates from 2017 place the local population at 61,439, a figure that has increased by slightly less than 2% over the last half-decade. In the past 20 years, Burnsville has come to rank as one of the 10 largest cities in Minnesota, thanks in part to the Interstate 35 construction in 2000.

The I-35 highway connects much of the city’s commercial interests, from its collection of auto dealerships to many of the region’s larger employers. Burnsville’s workforce is largely supported by a group of companies that includes Pepsi-Cola, Frontier Communications and YRC Worldwide. These organizations help to create a successful economy for the residents of Burnsville, who enjoy income and employment rates both higher than the national averages.

While the residents of Burnsville’s parent county do report a high level of life satisfaction (93% rating their quality of life as good or excellent), challenges do exist from the standpoint of mental wellness. Studies show that depression and anxiety are notable presences in this part of Minnesota, both among teenagers as well as adults. Mental health in general has shown to be a primary concern of several specific demographic groups, and stands as one of the area’s highest public health priorities.

Stopping Self-Harm in Burnsville

When discussing the effects that stem from poor mental health, it’s impossible to ignore some of the dangerous behaviors that it often inspires. One of the most glaring risks relates to self-harming behavior, which can include suicidal thoughts or attempts. Burnsville’s home of Dakota County is, unfortunately, all too aware of this reality, as suicide represents one of its leading causes of death.

Furthermore, Minnesota as a state faces an uphill battle in this same regard. A local report published in 2016 brought to light the elevated rate of suicide among young people in the North Star State, an estimated 10.2 incidents for every 100,000 total residents. This alarming figure is one that sadly outpaces the U.S. average of 9.6. per 100,000 persons.

A demonstrable link between suicidal behavior and the existence of mental disorders has been well established, as noted in the American Journal of Psychiatry, among other publications. Some estimates suggest that as many as 60% of those who take their own lives had previously dealt with some major form of depression. Combatting this public threat is likely to require both immediate action as well as effective longer-term planning.
