I am honored to have the opportunity to meet you and explore areas of the heart, mind, and soul with you. I have fallen in love with studying "love" since a young age. It occurred to me that life gives us many paradoxes/contradictions such as: "Go through pain in order to heal". Since my awareness opened up to the vast internal world of the human mind, I strive to find the answer. In the combination... Read More

An Overview of Mental Health in Folsom, California

In 2018, Folsom, California, ranked first in the category of best places to live in California for families. For the 78,038 residents, a strong economy, myriad of amenities, quality schools and low crime rate make Folsom an ideal location to call home. Located in Sacramento County, residents also benefit from comfortable temperatures and access to outdoor activities year-round.

However, even a highly-rated city has its share of mental health issues. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, a staggering 44.7 million adults in the US suffer from some form of mental illness. The state of California alone houses over 5 million people experiencing an emotional, behavioral or mental disorder.

Folsom’s Economic Picture

Folsom boasts a strong economy, with a median household income of $100,163 per year compared to the national average of $53,482. The unemployment rate of 3.8 percent is lower than the US rate of 5.2 percent. Recent and predicted future job growth is positive and higher than the national average.

However, the flipside to the economical benefits is the overall cost of living for the area. The state of California in general has a higher cost of living than the national average of 100. At an index of 140, Folsom is commensurate with the rate for the state and 40 percent higher than the nation. The most influential factor is the price of housing. In Folsom, the average home price of $433,300 is 135 percent higher than the US average of $184,700.

Although renting is a relatively more affordable option, the costs are still 54 percent higher than other US areas. Finding an affordable place to live in this desirable suburb can be stressful. Other residents may put a large chunk of money into housing and therefore have less discretionary funds for activities and vacations. Financial stressors can cause marital disagreements and impact self-esteem. Counseling can help ease the tension related to these issues.

Environment in Folsom, California

There are significant advantages to living in Folsom in terms of climate. On average, there are 267 sunny days per year compared to the national average of 205. The overall comfort index of 84 out of 100 is enviable compared to the mean of 54 in other states. Sunshine, fresh air and exercise are positive contributors to overall mental health.

While most residents easily spend quality time outdoors, others may be deterred by air quality. In Sacramento County, the overall Air Quality Index of 108 is significantly worse than the national average of 75. For elderly, infants or those in respiratory distress this issue may impact quality of life.

Unfortunately, living in the state of California also increases the chance of experiencing an earthquake by 761 percent. Any natural disaster can be traumatic for those involved, from feelings of general anxiety to severe depression. This is especially true if an earthquake causes physical harm to oneself or a loved one. Property damage is stressful and is particularly amplified if displaced during the renovation process. Therapy helps develop coping skills and methods to deal with these feelings in a supportive, confidential environment.

Mental Health Resources in Folsom, California

Across the US, only 43.1 percent of people with mental health needs receive treatment. This number rises to 62.3 percent in California, making it one of the top four worst states for prevalence of untreated adults with mental illness.

According to the California Health Care Foundation, the Sacramento area has ample licensed clinical social workers and psychiatrists. The number of marriage and family therapists and psychologists, however, are lower than the state average. This, along with lack of mental health insurance and difficulty knowing how to find a therapist likely contribute to less California residents seeking treatment.

In Folsom, there are a variety of available licensed, highly-qualified counselors. Some areas of specialty include marriage and family, depression and anxiety, self-esteem and motivation as well as trauma and abuse. For severe difficulties, Sacramento has psychiatric units that offer intensive inpatient support for all age ranges.
