An Overview of Mental Health in Flower Mound, Texas

Situated in Denton County, Texas, Flower Mound is a warm and welcoming town. With a population of almost 70,000, this Texan town boasts high household income and low rates of poverty. There are, of course, still many factors that can contribute to mental health issues in Flower Mound. If you or someone you know is experiencing mental illness, or facing some of these contributing factors, discover where you can find professional mental health assistance.

Mental Illness in Texas

Throughout the United States, millions of individuals suffer from some form of mental illness. All ages and demographics are affected, but there are some factors that can increase the likelihood of you experiencing a mental illness. In Texas, mental illness rates are slightly lower than the national average. Nevertheless, these issue still affect thousands of residents throughout the state. Here are some fast facts about mental illness in Texas:

  • 3.8 percent, or 723,000 adults suffer from a serious mental health issue
  • 64.7 percent of adolescents experiencing Major Depressive Episodes did not receive treatment
  • 93.6 percent of individuals with alcohol dependency did not receive treatment
  • 4.8 percent of Texan adolescents used pain relievers for nonmedical purposes

This statewide data shows that Texas is slightly better than average in some areas, but overall deals with similar rates of mental illness as the rest of the country. Many of these issues, like alcohol dependency, aren’t direct mental health concerns, but are strongly linked with experiencing mental illness.

Contributing Factors to Mental Illness in Flower Mound, Texas

There are many social and environmental factors that contribute to mental health issues in Flower Mound, Texas. Thankfully, many of these factors are experienced far less frequently in Flower Mound than in other parts of the state.

Poverty is strongly linked with not only mental disorders but also violence. This can quickly create a vicious cycle. Experiencing a mental health issue can cause a person to miss work, pay expensive medical costs and potentially become unemployed. Unemployment then increases the likelihood of increased mental health issues. In Flower Mound, only 3.23 percent of the population is living at or below the poverty rate. This is far lower than the national poverty rate average of 14 percent. Homeownership, another major indication of higher income, is at 86.4 percent in Flower Mound. With a large percentage of the population owning a home, homelessness isn’t as large of a contributing factor.

Another factor that increases the likelihood and severity of mental illness is substance abuse. Texas has a low rate of drug overdose deaths when compared to other states. 10.1 out of every 100,000 people die every year due to drug overdose. Excessive alcohol use, which is also linked with depression, occurs at a rate of 19.6 percent in Denton County. This is higher than other counties in Texas, making it a strong risk factor for health issues in Flower Mound.

Don’t wait to contact a mental health professional if you or a loved one are experiencing any of these correlated risk factors. Even if someone is suffering with mental health, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are also struggling with these other factors. Instead, they are simply at higher risk to engage in other behaviors or struggle with other addictions or environmental issues.

Divorce Statistics

Divorce rates in the United States, and Texas in particular, have been steadily dropping in recent years. In 2015, only 2.6 Texans per 1,000 went through a divorce. Divorce has serious mental health implications not only for the couple involved, but for the entire community. Divorce is typically linked with depression, anxiety and other stress factors. Consider contacting a licensed marriage therapist if you are considering a divorce. A therapist can help you either reconcile your marriage, or find a healthy and mutually beneficial way to navigate a divorce.
