The U.S. Census Bureau estimates its 2017 population at 325,605 residents, a 6.7% increase over the population size in 2010. Corpus Christi is the county seat for Nueces County, however the city boundaries also encompass portions of Aransas, Kleberg, and San Patricio counties.

According to the Census Bureau statistics, Corpus Christi trails behind the state and national averages in several socioeconomic categories relevant to the state of mental health and access to care for its residents. The annual per capita income in Corpus Christi is $26,109, which is lower than the $27,828 average for the state and almost $30,000 average for the United States. Additionally, a higher percentage of Corpus Christi’s population lives below the poverty line (16.6%) as compared to the average for Texas (15.6%) and the entire country (12.3%).

Mental Health Challenges in Corpus Christi, Texas

In the 2018 State of Mental Health in America report, MHA estimates that around 40 million Americans (or 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.) suffer from some form of mental health or behavioral disorder. Many of these individuals however are unable to receive the necessary care due to various reasons, such as lack of income or insurance, or even shortage of mental health care providers in the area. The percentage of uninsured residents in Corpus Christi for example is almost 21%, which is slightly higher than the state average of 18.6%. That number however is twice as high as the average for the United States (10.2%).

Additionally, the 2016 Coastal Bend Health Needs Assessment released by Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi reports that mental health issues are on the rise in this community. According to their survey results, 52% of the respondents stated that they’ve had episodes of poor mental health in the past 30 days, a staggering increase from 27% in 2013. When cross-referenced with socioeconomic factors such as income, the survey found that individuals with incomes less the $50,000 had on average a higher number of poor mental health days than those making over $50,000.

Another factor creating a challenge is the shortage of mental health care providers in Texas. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, while Nueces County has 202 licensed chemical dependency counselors and 344 licensed professional counselors, there are only 22 psychiatrists and 91 psychologists.
