Overview of Mental health resources in Cary, North Carolina

Cary is mostly in Wake County and a small portion of it is in Chatham County.  Cary is the largest city in North Carolina.  The city’s population increased a little over 43% since 2000.  As of the 2010 Census, the population was 135,234 and its estimated population was 162,025 in April, 2018.  It is the fifth fastest-growing municipality in the U.S.  It has a very low crime rate.  In 2015, it was reported to have only 84 crimes per 100,000 people.  Cary has a total area of 43.5 square miles (112.6 km²) and has a humid subtropical climate.  The summers are hot and the winters are mild.  The median household income was $110,609 in 2011 and the poverty rate was less than 6%.  It is estimated that over 70% of the residents were born outside of the area or outside of the country.  SAS Institute and Fidelity Investments are the top employers in the area.

City Concerns

The Wake County Community Health Needs Assessment reported in 2016 that its residents are unaware of the mental health services available to them or they are finding navigating the system to be difficult.  Many cannot afford private providers and are not finding enough sliding scale programs.  Many of the residents who participated in the survey stated that they often rely on emergency services “inappropriately”, because they do not know where else to go.  The same report identifies the 9th grade to be a large concern.  Thirty-two percent report that they have feelings of hopelessness.  Eighteen percent experienced suicidal thoughts.   Out of all of the students in Wake County, 28% reported that they did not feel good about themselves compared to 25% in the entire state.  Twenty-nine percent of both Wake County and the state of North Carolina students reported that they felt sad or hopeless for two weeks or more (one of the components for clinical depression).    Nineteen percent of all students, county and state, report that they have been bullied or are being bullied.  And 17% of both county and state students confessed that they seriously contemplated suicide within the past 12 months.

In the state of North Carolina, 35,827 divorces and annulments were granted in 2010. Diana Elliot, a family demographer at the Census Bureau that year, states that divorce rates are higher in the South, because marriage rates are higher.   In the same year, the U.S. rate was 3.6 percent.

There are approximately 50 psychiatrists in Cary, North Carolina.   There is an estimate of 459 licensed counselors, psychologists, and licensed mental health social workers and approximately 28 treatment centers.

How We Can Help

We did the research for you and listed nonprofit mental health organizations to make it easier for you to navigate the system.  Some of them offer sliding scale payment plans and it is noted if they do.  We hope that you can find a professional who is a good fit for you as you strive towards healing and happiness.  Please consider listing your symptoms, the timelines, and any other concerns you have prior to making the phone call.  This will ensure that you are thorough in your initial conversation and do not forget any important items.  If it important to you, consider if there are any factors that are necessary in working with your therapist.  Is their specialization an important factor?  Gender?  Education and experience?

We hope that you found this resource directory useful in finding the correct professional for your needs.
