Mental Health Resources in Downers Grove

Factors Contributing to Mental Health Challenges

Despite the better-than-average nature of many of the contributing factors in Downers Grove, these factors still contribute to many local issues of mental health challenges.

While not the most struggling county in Illinois, DuPage County still has approximately 7.3% of its population experiencing food insecurity. The insecurity of basic necessities can dramatically increase stress and anxiety, which are contributing factors to many mental health challenges.
