An Overview of Mental Health in Canton, Ohio

Mental health issues can affect all individuals at almost any age, from children in their formative years to those in their middle age to men and women approaching their golden years. Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental problems can develop suddenly or appear after a traumatic event, such as the death of a loved one or a divorce. Help is available for those who suffer from the afflictions; however, it is important that they have the correct information about resources in their area before they reach out.

Canton, Ohio, is home to 71,329 people as of the 2016 census and is located between two of the states’ larger cities, Cleveland and Akron. Canton lies closer to the northeast section of Ohio and experiences a variety of weather conditions, from humid summers to frigid winters. The city enjoys a low crime rate when compared to the rest of the country, and women outnumber men by almost eight percent. The city’s unemployment rate has fallen since October and currently sits at 4.4 percent, which is only slightly higher than the national average of 4.0 percent.

Despite the availability of jobs available in Canton’s manufacturing, retail, healthcare and educational sectors and an active real estate market, the residents of the city have their fair share of mental health problems. One 2015 report revealed that the need for such services was the second-most vital for the city, with access to health care being the greatest. However, while the necessity for mental heath services in Canton is obvious, some residents may not be seeking active treatment due to several factors that may include:

  • The stigma of mental disorders and how they might be judged by others;
  • A lack of health insurance that gives individuals better access to professional care;
  • The inability to recognize symptoms of anxiety or depression;
  • Denial or fear over admitting professional help is needed.

While these issues can be common when it comes to mental health problems, it is important that they be properly addressed so those in Canton who need help are not afraid to seek it out and harm themselves instead.

Mental Health Factors for Canton, Ohio

While some mental disorders can be influenced by genetics, others can be triggered by a traumatic event, such as the death of a child. The infant mortality rate in Ohio is unusually high when compared to the rest of the nation, and over 15 percent of residents in Stark County, of which Canton is the seat, reported that their immediate family has experienced the death of an infant. This event can cause terrible trauma and result in serious depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and lead to drug and alcohol abuse.

Gender issues in Canton may also contribute to the development of certain mental problems, particularly when it comes to wage inequality. The average annual salary for men living in the city is over $7,000 greater than women, and females who perform the same jobs in the nursing, retail and manufacturing sectors make less than their male coworkers. Women who are experiencing wage inequality may develop anxiety over their finances, which can lead to broken sleep, mood changes and alter relationships with friends and family.

Finding Mental Health Services in Canton

The first step Canton residents can take when it comes to finding help for their mental health issues is to understand what kind of resources are available nearby. Canton has a variety of treatment facilities and private therapists, including Phoenix Rising Behavioral Healthcare and Recovery, North Canton Therapy Works and other services that specialize in individual and family therapy for people of all ages.

Of course, some residents of the city face a variety of challenges when they attempt to find treatment. A lack of health insurance is especially problematic, as nearly 12 percent of people in Ohio are uninsured. The Hispanic population of the state is particularly impacted, with 27 percent lacking insurance. Unemployment, poverty and language barriers may be to blame in this case; however, despite the causes, it leaves this section of Canton’s residents under serious threat of continued mental decline, substance abuse and suicide.

These specialists can help you understand the importance of facing these challenges and offer you healthy ways to cope.
