An Overview of Mental Health in Chino Hills, California

Chino Hills is an idyllic and family-friendly suburb of Los Angeles. It has a beautifully diverse population, top-notch public schools and ample hiking trails and parks. The Shoppes of Chino Hills have all the trendy eateries residents could want. The city is known for being a relatively safe place to raise a family.

With access to multiple freeways, residents can get around Southern California easily for work and leisure. LA is about 40 miles away and Anaheim 20 miles. The decent quality of life available in Chino Hills has helped it show up on various rankings of best places to live in the US.

Mental Health in Chino Hills

As with many other Californians, residents in Chino Hills may consider mental health to be one of the main chronic illnesses they have to cope with. These residents also face some challenges specific to their region.

  • Wildfires: Natural disasters, such as wildfires that are destroying parts of Southern California, can have significant mental health affects in addition to the physical damage of property or loss of life. A counselor may be able to help you cope with grief and fear.
  • Career Pressures: With a median household income of $102,746 and more than 40% of adults having college degrees, Chino Hills can be a competitive and driven place to live. Individuals who take on stressful careers to support their families may be prone to anxiety, stress and burnout.
  • Adjusting to the US: In Chino Hills, 9% of residents were born overseas. This makes for a wonderfully diverse community, but it can be challenging to adjust to a new country and customs.
  • Long Commutes: The average commute time is 38.9 minutes each way, with most workers traveling by themselves. While the commute can help create a break between work and home life, spending this much time in traffic can result in stress and anxiety.
  • Healthy Eating and Living / Obesity: A community health needs assessment that covered Chino Hills highlighted obesity as a top health concern. Being overweight or not following healthy eating and living guidelines can lead to multiple health complications.

Mental Health Resources in Chino Hills

California is slowly beginning to recognize the mental health challenges its residents face. If no action is taken, the state could lack up to 1,848 psychiatrics by 2025. Due to this shortage, there are many Californians who do not get the support they need.

It’s important to remember that state-wide statistics can often overlook resources that are available locally. No matter what life challenge you are dealing with – including stress, anxiety, grief, trauma, family/relationship/parenting issues, career difficulties, anger management, depressions, addiction, ADHD, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, etc. – there is a counselor who can help.

In the Chino Hills area, residents can access the services of a range of male and female counselors. These counselors have achieved various qualifications such as licensed clinical social worker, clinical psychologist, licensed marriage and family therapist and licensed professional clinical counselor.

They have experience working in different settings such as outpatient mental health programs, treatment programs, hospital units and community organizations.

The Challenge of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Chino Hills

While most residents in Chino Hills likely have the financial resources needed in order to access mental health care, they may face other obstacles. Language may be a significant barrier to care for many as 41.8% of residents speak a language other than English as their first language. Therapy is likely more effective when conducted in a native language. The large percent of the population who speak Spanish, Chinese, Korean or Tagalog may have difficulty accessing care.

Stigma may be another limiting factor. Although the conversation around mental illness is gradually opening up, many still think it is shameful to ask for help. It’s important to remember that all care is confidential.

Newer forms of therapy may be able to help address both the language and stigma barriers. Text, phone and video-based sessions offer greater access to different therapists and more convenience for those seeking support.
