Guide to Finding Mental Health Professionals in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs has become an attractive city for new residents as it has ample amounts of sunshine most of the year, popular tourist sites, and plenty of employment.  This influx of new people puts a strain on the city and it can be challenging to find the right mental health services.

Colorado Springs rests on the high desert.  It covers 6,035 feet (1,839 m), making it the largest city in Colorado by area.  The 2017 Census reports that the city has approximately 465,000 people and is the second largest populated city in Colorado.  Since the 1950’s, when the Ent Air Force Base was chosen as the headquarters for the Air Defense Command (ADC), the city began to have a continued expansion of military presence.   This sector is what mostly fuels the economy followed by technology and tourism.  The median household income reported in 2017 was $56,227.  Approximately 71% are white collar workers and 29% are blue collar workers.  The unemployment rate was at 3.9% in 2015 compared to 5% for the nation.  Almost 13% the area’s population is in poverty.  The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reported that there were over 21,000 divorces in 2013.  This is the lowest rate in almost 10 years, which is in alignment with the national divorce statistics.

The city has an abundance of green open spaces in urban settings, parks, bike trails, and site-seeing locations.  These are some of the reasons that inspired nonresidents to relocate to the city.  However, an inpouring of new residents within the past 20 years has caused major issues with overcrowding.  There are government budget concerns, traffic problems, and the crime rate is higher than 88% than all of the state’s cities.

Mental Health Concerns

Colorado is ranked 43 out of the 51 states in terms of mental health considerations.  (District of Columbia is added to the list as a state.)  This means that it has a higher frequency of mental health issues and a lower ratio of access to mental health treatment.  It is rated 48th for youth mental health prevalence.      Many people know Colorado Springs as the “nonprofit capital of Colorado”, because there are about 2,000 nonprofits in the Pikes Peak area.  However, most of them are small with budgets under $100,000.

Youth suicide is a major concern in the area.  It was the number one cause of death of children in Colorado between the ages of 10 and 17 from years 2010 – 2014.  In 2016, Colorado Springs experienced what they termed as a suicide cluster when 29 children committed suicide.  The Colorado Behavioral Health Council reports that there is not enough screening and preventative services, a lack of mental health support in schools, and not enough psychiatrists and psychologists in the area.  At a sample meeting, the Council found that two-thirds of children experiencing mental health issues were not getting the treatment that they needed.  Seventy-five percent of the parents shared that they did not know how or where to find treatment for their children.

The Mental Health America of Colorado reports that the state has a behavioral health crisis in that there is not enough follow-up care.  Treatment is often prescribed after an individual’s crisis.  This is why it is so important to seek care when you are initially experiencing mental health symptoms.  Listed below are resources that can help you find support, preventative treatment, and start your path to mental and emotional wellness.
