Would you like to thrive in your life, rather than just do your best to survive?

An Overview of Mental Health in Carmel, Indiana

In recent years, the population of this northern suburb of Indianapolis has been growing considerably. It’s been showing up on “Best Place to Live” lists thanks to its strong public school system, healthy job market, nice housing developments, strong public safety and decent nightlife, outdoor activities and family fun. The Monon Trail and Coxhall Gardens offer a nature escape while the Center for the Performing Arts and Carmel Arts and Design district deliver culture on par with big cities

71% of the residents hold a bachelor’s degree, the median household income is $109,201 and the poverty rate is 3.7% – all much stronger statistics than the state and country overall. Many financial services and health care companies have set up an office or headquarters in the city, drawing in lots of talent.

Mental Health in Carmel

Money doesn’t solve everything. In fact, researchers have discovered that over a certain amount, money doesn’t affect happiness the way many think it would. Carmel residents deal with many of the same mental health issues as other Hoosiers and Americans. However, there are a few trends that seem to be having a particularly big impact on residents in recent years.

  • Obesity: Community health needs assessment (CHNA) surveys have indicated that obesity is one of the biggest health challenges facing Hamilton County. There can be significant physical and mental health challenges associated with obesity in both adults and youth.
  • Substance Abuse and Addiction: The CHNA also indicated concern around illegal drug use, prescription drug abuse and alcohol abuse. Wealthier populations are not immune to drug and alcohol problems, and sometimes have increased access to these substances given an increased ability to pay. Addicts and friends and family can benefit from counseling services as they process the devastating effects of the illness of addiction.
  • Pressure: High-achieving cities make for a great place to raise kids, but there can be tremendous pressure to keep up and outperform your peers. This can lead to stress, anxiety and burnout. Mental health services may be able to help individuals develop coping mechanisms and stress-relieving techniques.
  • Long Commutes: Hamilton County has one of the worst commute times in the state. The sedentary habit and stress of traffic are having harmful enough effects that they’re showing up in CHNA surveys.

The Challenge of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Carmel

Within the US, Indiana is ranked 48th in terms of the amount of mental health services available to the residents in need of them. 55.4% of adults and 62.7% of youth in the state with mental illness don’t receive treatment the treatment they need.

The state recently created a mental health hospital network to try and expand access to care, and the new NeuroDiagnostic Institute in Indianapolis will be its hub.

There are also non-profits and community organizations that offer free services such as support groups and crisis lines. Some organizations may even offer free or sliding-scale based counseling.
