Guide to Mental Health Professionals in Chandler, Arizona

Chandler in Maricopa County was named an All-American City by the National Civic League due to its dedication to the revitalization of its historic downtown.  This heart of the city is the home to the award-winning Chandler City Hall and the Center for the Arts.  It has had exponential growth since the 1990’s and is ranked one of the fastest growing municipalities in the country. Chandler is graced with near perfect weather year-round.  The city’s residents enjoy 330 days of sunny weather and an average of 85 degrees in temperature.  The city occupies 58.0 square miles according to the Census.  The city is now limited to any type of expansion, except for a few county islands, due to the surrounding Gila River Indian Community.

Intel is a major employer in Chandler, providing over 11,000 jobs, and public schools are the 2nd largest employer.  There were 236,123 people in 2010 according to the most recent U.S. Census and the median family income was $81,720.  Chandler offers a low cost of living and a large amount of affordable housing.  In March 2018, there was 3.6% of unemployment.

City Concerns

Arizona is experiencing a rampant rise in youth suicide and in children as young as the age of five.  Arizona’s Child Fatality Review Program (CFR)’s 2016 report stated that the suicide rate for people under the age of 18 increased by 81% between the years of 2009 – 2015.  More than 55% of these suicides occurred in Maricopa County.  The Jason Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to end youth suicide, states that 90% of those minors had experienced a mental health disorder and/or addiction issue with 60% who suffered from depression and many of them were not receiving any treatment.  Professionals who work with students are seeing a decrease in healthy sleep patterns due to regular smartphone use and it is making an impact on their mental health.  Social media is suspect as well, since students can no longer detach from bullying that occurs in school and now can continue even when they are at home.  Adults are suffering, too.  There were 266,894 inpatient hospitalizations for mental health issues in the state of Arizona in 2016.

There were 9118 divorces in Maricopa County in 2018.  The U.S. rate was 3.6% in 2010 and the state of Arizona was at 3.5% in the same year.

There is an estimate of 259 psychologists, counselors, and social workers in Chandler and 52 treatment centers. There are approximately 35 psychiatrists.
