Overview of Mental Health Resources in Evansville, Indiana

Evansville is the government seat of Vanderburgh County, Indiana.  The 2010 U.S. Census reports that the population was 117,429 at the time.  It is often called “Crescent Valley” or “River City” as it is seated right by the Ohio River.  The city has an area of 44.622 square miles (115.57 km2).  It has a humid subtropical climate.  It experiences hot, humid summers and cool, mild winters.  Evansville serves as the region’s economic hub as it is home to four New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) companies and three companies traded on the NASDAQ.  The Census reports that, in 2016, the median household income was $36,330 with the per capita income being $21,368.  The poverty level was 21.7%.  The largest industries in Evansville are healthcare, finance, education, and manufacturing.  It has also become the tri-state (Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana) area’s major center for the healthcare and medical sciences industries.  The community does attract ample amounts of tourists due to being the residence of the state’s oldest zoo, the state’s first casino, and attractions for sports tourism.   The business district and riverfront attract tens of thousands of tourists each year for its riverboat gambling, restaurants, bars, and stores.  It is an admirable protector of history as the city has 13 neighborhoods that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve is the largest territory of virgin forest compared to any other city in the U.S.

City Concerns

The city is affected by poor water quality due to the pollution in the Ohio River from agriculture runoff, toxic chemicals, and sewage overflows.  The air quality is poor as well caused by the six large coal-fueled power plants within 30 miles of the community.   These factors can be contributors to poor health, which includes mental and emotional capacities.

According to the Indiana Youth Institute in 2015, Indiana has the highest rate of teens who have considered suicide in the country and the second-highest rate of those who attempted it.  The director of the Indiana Suicide Prevention Coalition reported that the state has many challenges to accessible, affordable care for youth in need of mental health services.  The other deterrent for all people with mental health issues in Indiana is the stigma as it is in most parts of the country.  The overall suicide rate for Vanderburgh County is 21.6 deaths per 100,000 people, with the rate for males being twice as high as females, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  An estimate of nearly 20% of people aged 65 and above suffer from depression in the county, making it the worst quartile in the U.S. and Indiana Counties for mental illness in that demographic.  The reports of mental illness are at 4.2% in the county compared to 3.7% in the state.  One in four people in the city of Evansville suffer from depression.

How We Can Help

One of the challenges in finding mental health and behavioral health support is lack of awareness of the support in the community.  We researched your community to find providers to make it easier for you to find your way to a positive wellbeing and balanced emotional health.  If you or a loved one is experiencing any thoughts of harming oneself or another, please contact one of the Crisis Intervention hotlines below immediately.

List your symptoms, how long and how often you experience them, and any other concerns that you may have.  This will make your initial call easier in expressing what your needs are and being sure that they will be met in a timely manner.  In addition to this list, consider what qualities in a therapist would be best for you.  Do you prefer a specific gender?  Is there a particular specialty that is important to you?  By considering these factors first, you will be able to narrow down your choices sooner.  Many therapists will consult with you complimentarily prior to making a commitment to one provider.

There are approximately 51 psychiatrists in Evansville.  There is an estimate of 52 therapists and licensed counselors.  There are approximately 9 treatment centers in the city.

According to the 2017 U.S. Census Bureau, the marriage status in Evansville is that 50% of the residents are married, 30% never married, and 14% are divorced compared to the national rate of divorce of 11%.

There is support available for you in Evansdale and professionals who want to help.  We hope that finding this directory is your first step towards finding peace and wellness.
