Overview of Mental Health Resources In Elk Grove, California

The city of Elk Grove, California is boastful about its community. And, rightfully so. Located just west of Sacramento, Elk Grove is known for its award-winning school district, high quality of life, and entrepreneurial spirit. As per 2017 data from the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 171,844 people are inhabiting the area. That sounds like a lot of people, but what’s more impressive is how quickly that number is inflating. Most municipalities in similar situations won’t see a ten-year population rise of more than ten percent. Elk Grove’s citizenry, on the other hand, has expanded by approximately 12.3 percent since 2010.

It’s easy to see why for many, moving to Elk Grove, California makes sense. Amenities are densely and conveniently distributed throughout the town, granting residents easy access to shopping and entertainment. However, the city of Elk Grove is going through what officials are calling a “mental health crisis.” The problem has spread far beyond the Elk Grove city limits. Let’s take a detailed look at Elk Grove, California’s mental health situation, what is making it poor, and what you can do to reach out for help if you are in need.

The regrettable state of mental health in Elk Grove isn’t just being experienced by that city. According to a 2017 report commissioned by Mental Health America, the entire state of California is in the top 50 percent of states regarding the prevalence of mental illness. The ranking in Mental Health America’s report also factors in the level of accessibility to care in the area. In this context and for future reference, the term mental illness can refer to any disorder of the mind ranging in severity. For example, both clinical depression and schizophrenia are under that umbrella. So, what is contributing to the deteriorating condition of mental health in Elk Grove?

Firstly, the demographics of the community are one of the most susceptible groups to mental health problems. Elk Grove is a majority-white, relatively upscale neighborhood for middle-income individuals. Additionally, according to Area Vibes, the population density in the city is a whopping 1572% higher than in the state of California. Studies suggest that mental illness is more prolific amongst denser populations.

Another problem in the Elk Grove area is poverty. The cost of living is exuberant and far too much to handle if you are without a high-paying job. The cost of housing alone is 67 percent higher than the rest of the nation, but the average income per capita is only seven percent higher than the national average, as per the U.S. Census Bureau. This discrepancy undoubtedly breeds poverty within the area. A stat that’s even more concerning, however, is the unemployment rate in Elk Grove. It is almost 20% higher than the national average. According to a recent report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, adults living under the federal poverty level are more than twice as likely to suffer from a mental condition than the average American.

Moreover, the rate of divorce in the region is one of the highest in the nation. Experts suggest the divorce rate in California is ten percent greater than the national average. It is no secret that divorce can have profound effects on the mental health of all parties involved, including children. If you feel your relationship is in jeopardy, it’s best to seek out counseling and begin the healing process before making any permanent decisions.

The Trouble of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Elk Grove, California

The United States as a whole is going through an unfortunate shortage of mental health professionals providing treatment. According to researchers at Mental Health America, 56% of American adults with a mental illness will not receive treatment; that’s the majority. Officials are blaming that abysmally high number on poorly crafted policy, poverty, and stigma. Many people also report feeling overwhelmed when searching for a therapist. It’s recommended to draft a list of goals that can be reasonably obtained throughout your time in therapy.

While the number of those lacking general health insurance in Elk Grove is better than the rest of the nation, poverty is still a problem. For many low-income earners, the out-of-pocket expense that accompanies counseling sessions is simply unaffordable. By and large, those people go through life without receiving any necessary treatment.

Mental Health Resources in Elk Grove, California

California residents do not have the best access to care, according to Mental Health America. However, residents of Elk Grove still have a decent number of facilities to go to for mental health care. For example, the Kaiser Permanente Behavioral Health Center is a local psychiatric hospital servicing Elk Grove residents. Reach Adult Development is another organization dedicated to offering a wide array of useful tools and resources for those in need.
