Overview of Mental Health resources in Fontana, California

Fontana, California is the 19th largest city in the state and the second largest city in San Bernardino County. Because of its proximity to the major interstate highways, it is known as a major hub for the trucking industry. Unsurprisingly, many trucking equipment and industrial equipment sales companies and distributors are based in this area.  With an estimated population of 211,815 residents as of 2017, the city has been one of the fastest growing areas due to the expansion of significant residential developments in the past several years. However, as with many of the other cities that make up Southern California’s ‘Inland Empire,’ Fontana was hit hard by the subprime mortgage crisis. Economic duress has had a significant impact on the lives of families and children. Low-income households have an especially troublesome dilemma of being at risk of mental health issues due to poverty as well as limited ability to seek proper treatment.

The Toll of Economic Hardship on Mental Health

According to one report, approximately 65,000 low-income residents of San Bernardino County are in need of mental health services. They rely on publicly-funded county mental health programs to get treatment but these services are not always readily available. As one of the leading causes of disability within the county, mental health has become a very serious issue for cities like Fontana to tackle.

As the second-largest city in the county, Fontana will play a significant role in improving the delivery of services to residents and ensuring that people have access to the programs that can help them recover.

If you are suffering from a mental illness or having trouble with substance abuse, it may be your time to reach out for help. If you are ready, we want to assist you on your search for a wellness program in the Fontana area. We can help guide you to a Fontana therapist or mental health professional that can provide a helping hand on the road to recovery.

Admitting that you may need the support of a professional is not always easy, but when the time is right, we want to be able to help you find a therapist or other professional in Fontana and make the search process less intimidating for you. We can help you start the process of finding your ideal professional or program. In this initial search stage, we suggest that you take a moment to think about what your needs are. The more personalized you can make this process, the easier it will be to choose from the variety of options out there.

Where to Begin Your Search

The search for a therapist or mental health professional begins should begin with a thoughtful reflection on what you need and want from the process. If you can have clarity about what your objectives are and the problems that you face, you’ll have a better chance of being able to communicate more effectively with your chosen professional. If you don’t know where to start, we’ve compiled some questions you may want to consider:

  • Why do you feel like now is the right time to seek assistance?
  • What problems and issues do you have that are interfering with your everyday life?
  • What is your goal for going to therapy or seeing a professional?
  • Do you feel more comfortable interacting with a man or a woman?
  • Are you dealing with mental health or substance abuse issues that may require treatment by a specialist?

Take note of your responses and see if they lead to other questions and concerns you might have. Asking yourself these questions can help narrow the focus of professionals you might want to work with. Finding the right match for you requires that you first understand yourself.

Health Insurance Considerations

The financial reality of seeking mental health services is sometimes a hindrance to getting the care that you need. We suggest you contact your health insurer and find out if they cover such services. You may find that they have their own network of therapists, mental health professionals, or treatment programs that will save a significant amount on out-of-pocket costs for you.
