An Overview of Mental Health in Deerfield Beach, Florida

Situated on the Southeastern coast of the peninsula, Deerfield Beach, Florida, is home to 80,571 residents according to the United States Census Bureau. Incorporated in 1925, the town enjoys a rich history of booming agriculture. Throughout the latter part of the century, industries broadened to include manufacturing and distribution. Currently the tropical climate, breathtaking ocean views and numerous amenities attract tourists year-round.

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that 44.7 million adults in the United States suffer from mental health issues. Psychological disorders impact people in every walk of life regardless of age, gender or location. However, outside forces do intensify the impact of mental illness. Life events such as natural disasters, financial struggles or relationship difficulties can cause significant stress for the population of Deerfield Beach.

Florida’s Mental Health Statistics

The state of Florida ranks 9 out of 51 in terms of lowest prevalence of adult mental illness according to Mental Health America. Approximately 17.3 percent of residents have psychological needs, compared to the 18.07 percent national average. Living in Florida is also correlated with the least amount of suicidal thoughts out of any state, 3.34 percent compared to the US average of 4.04 percent.

The same picture for Florida’s youth, however, is less promising. The rate of childhood depression is slightly more prevalent in Florida than across the nation. Devastatingly, suicide continues to be the third leading cause of death in 15-24 year olds and second in the 25-34 age range. Therapeutic intervention is crucial for adolescents and young adults experiencing feelings of depression or suicidal ideation.

Climate in Deerfield Beach, Florida

Locals and tourists alike benefit from invigorating ocean breezes and bright, sunny days in Southern Florida. With average temperatures in the 70s and 80s year-round, the weather is ideal. Excellence in air quality, shore conditions, habitat conservation and water quality earned Deerfield Beach the award-winning “Blue Wave” beach designation from the Clean Beach Council. Fresh, clean air and plenty of sunshine are known to improve mood.

However, the downfall of living in close proximity to the sea is the continued threat of hurricanes. In Broward County, the frequency of natural disasters is nearly twice the national average. Hurricanes, floods and tropical storms are more common in this region. These events can have severe negative consequences on mental health, ranging from stress to grief. Those experiencing this spectrum of emotions benefit from professional, therapeutic care.

Deerfield Beach Economy

The cost of living index of 98 in Deerfield Beach is commensurate with the indices of Florida (99) and the national average (100). Housing prices are 32 percent lower than the US median of $184,700, with a median home price of $124,900. However, the unemployment rate of 5.9 percent is higher than the state (4.9 percent) and nation (4.7 percent). More concerning, 18.1 percent of city residents live at or below the poverty level. Professional counseling helps those stressed from financial concerns make a plan for the future and learn to cope with related negative feelings.

Marriage Statistics in Deerfield Beach

Throughout the US, the average divorce rate falls around 10.92 percent. Florida is in the middle of the pack in comparison to other states with a rate of 10.7 percent. Deerfield Beach marriage statistics reveal that 13 percent of men and 18 percent of women are currently divorced. There are an additional 4 percent of men and 13 percent of women widowed. Whether through divorce or death, the loss of a spouse is heartbreaking. Marriage counseling helps rebuild communication and trust between partners.  Individual therapy assists people in learning to cope and thrive in these new life circumstances.

Access to Care in Deerfield Beach, Florida

Across the nation, 56.4 percent of people with mental health needs do not receive treatment. In Florida, that percentage rises to 61.4 making it the seventh worst state in the nation for access to care. This is likely due to a variety of factors including lack of insurance or financial means, fear of stigma attached to mental illness or lack of knowledge in locating support services.

E-Counseling simplifies the process of finding an experienced, professional counselor to help with the specific needs of you or a loved one. Access a variety of Deerfield Beach therapists through our online directory and take the next step towards improved emotional well-being.
