An Overview of Mental Health Resources in Corona, California

The beautiful and popular city of Corona is located in Riverside County, California. It is home to approximately 167,836 people, according to 2017 statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Residents are treated with pretty views of the nearby Santa Ana Mountains and national forests. It is clear to anybody that sees the town how abundant and important nature is there. Furthermore, the city of Corona is not short on entertainment. Thanks to the good number of amenities in convenient locations, you’re never more than a quick walk or drive away from any shopping experience. The city is well-known for being the home of the massive Cajalco shopping center.

While the bustling city of Corona might be teeming with life and activity, that does not mean it is free of all problems. For example, there is a high rate of unemployment amongst the city’s citizenry, worsening the economic situations of many. Unemployment is ancillary to a bigger problem at hand. Officials in the area describe Corona as going through a “mental health crisis.” But, what does that mean? Let’s go over what mental health in Corona is like, why the situation in the city is particularly poor, and what you can do to reach out for help and get in contact with a therapist who can help you if you are in need.

An Overview of Mental Health in Corona, California

The overall state of mental health in Corona is in decline. That being said, the problem is not contained to just the city, nor the county of Riverside. The United States as a whole in addition to the entire state of California is experiencing a lack of access to mental health care as well as skyrocketing rates of mental illness. According to a study published by Mental Health America, more than 40 million Americans have a mental health condition. As per a separate 2017 report from Mental Health America, the state of California is amongst the top 50 percent of states regarding the prevalence of mental illness. In this context and for future reference, the term mental illness refers to any disorder of the mind one can experience, ranging in severity; under the umbrella is anything from clinical depression and anxiety to schizophrenia, for example. So, why is it that Corona, in particular, is having to deal with the harsher side of America’s mental health crisis?

First of all, low-income and poverty is a big concern for the city. As per statistics from the Department of Labor, the unemployment rate in Corona is almost ten percent higher than the national average. It is unfortunate that the rate of jobless individuals is so high. One can assume that the lack of jobs in the area reflects the generally poor economic health of the city. Moreover, there is an undeniable statistical link between poverty and mental illness. According to a study commissioned by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, American adults living under the federal poverty level are more than two times as likely to be diagnosed with a mental health condition than their higher-earning counterparts. As poverty swells, so does mental illness.

The cost of living in Corona is quite high relative to the rest of the United States. The cost of housing alone is dramatically steeper. According to Area Vibes, it is roughly 90 percent higher than the national average. A middle to high-income is a requirement of decent living in Corona. However, the average income per capita is around six percent lower than the national average of $29,829, as per the U.S. Census Bureau. The reality of the situation is that Corona requires a higher cost of living than much of the rest of the nation, but its residents earn less at the same time. High costs coupled with low compensation is a recipe for disaster.

The Trouble of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Corona, California

The inconvenient truth is that accessibility to mental health care is low for all of America. As per a study from Mental Health America, an estimated a majority of American adults with a mental illness do not receive any form of treatment, even if they may require it. Experts blame the general absence of care on a myriad of reasons, including legislative policies that were poorly executed, poverty, and stigma. Some people also feel overwhelmed after deciding to take the step to find a therapist. It’s best to write down a list of reasonable goals you wish to attain throughout your therapy sessions.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 15 percent of Corona residents are living without any health insurance. Unfortunately, very few of these people are able to afford the out-of-pocket expense of counseling.

Mental Health Resources in Corona, California

The good news for those that need assistance with mental health in Corona is that there is a large number of facilities to seek help from. Riverside County Mental Health, for example, is a local mental health clinic servicing citizen of Corona and the surrounding areas. Moreover, the Corona Regional Medical Center is a renowned facility in the area providing a bevy of behavioral health services to those in need.
