Overview of Mental Health Resources in Carrolton, Texas

Mental health is as important to an individual as their physical health, but it may be overlooked because the symptoms are hard to see, education is hard to come by and help is often hard to find. Mental health can be affected by relationship problems, a sudden death of a loved one, anxiety, depression and stress, but the good news is it doesn’t have to last forever. There is professional help wherever you are located if you just know where to look.

Carrolton, Texas, is home to close to 150,000 people, splitting almost evenly down the middle between men and women. The city surpasses the state average when it comes to citizens with graduate degrees, and the most popular religion is Evangelical Protestant. The unemployment rate is significantly lower than the average and the median age is over the state average. Around 48 percent of people in the city have a healthy diet rate.

As with most cities, there are also those who struggle, and no city is immune to mental illness. Compared to the rest of the state, slightly more Carrolton residents feel bad about themselves and sleep less at night. According to the last census report, over ten percent of the population lives in poverty. Over 20 percent of residents have no health insurance and over four percent have some type of disability. The lack of health insurance can make it extremely difficult for those who need help to actually get it.

Illness, disability, lack of sleep, feelings of worthlessness and financial worries can all affect your mental health. As the residents of Carrolton face these challenges, we are here to make sure they have the correct resources to face them in a health manner.

Divorce Rates in Texas

In Texas, almost 40 percent of the population is married, with the divorced population hovering close to 11 percent. Mental illness can affect divorce rates in two ways. First, if one individual deals with some type of mental illness, it can often lead to problems that cause divorce. Second, those who have been through a divorce are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health problems.

Mental Health Concerns in Texas

In Texas and children aged 9-17, at least 20 percent will have some type of diagnosed mental illness and 20 percent of adults every year deal with some type of mental health concern. According to Mental Health American of Greater Dallas, that means over 1.4 million children and over 5 million adults. In contrast, only 211,000 residents receive community-based services for mental health.

There are many serious consequences for those with mental illness who go without treatment. Some of those include:

  • Homelessness
  • Incarceration
  • Episodes of violence
  • Suicide
  • Victimization

The quality of life for those with untreated mental illness is often dismal. To combat the effects of these conditions, it’s vital that communities provide access to quality mental health services to every single citizen.

Untreated mental illness is also extremely expensive for the government. Incarceration costs, hospital bills and violent episodes require the city and state to put forth resources they may not have. The obvious alternative solution is to treat mental illness early and know that the long-term benefits are worth the up-front costs.

Mental Health Resources in Carrolton

Mental illness is not something that you must suffer from your entire life and it can sneak up on you when you least expect it. According to The National Institute of Mental Health, common mental health disorders include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Suicide

Resources include Carrolton Springs, Behavioral Health Centers of America, Center for Court Approved Counseling, American Addiction Centers and a long list of highly-qualified therapists and psychiatrists experienced in handling a variety of mental health disorders.
