An Overview of Mental Health in Frisco Texas

The suburbs, rural areas and big cities all have one thing in common – people who want or need the help and guidance of a trained mental health professional. Frisco Texas is no different as its residents deal with the same issues as anywhere else in the country. The good news is Frisco, a northern suburb of Dallas and the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex offers a high number of mental health resources.

With a host of retail, commercial and sporting venues to attend, there’s never any shortage of things to do in this mostly affluent area of Texas. Voted as the best place to live in 2018, Frisco is a rapidly growing city 30 minutes north of Dallas, TX. it boasts one of the most respected public school districts in the nation, having more than 70 campuses and a graduation rate over 98 percent.

Mental Health Statistics for Frisco

Having a sense of well being and having most, if not all of your basic needs met are but two of the hallmarks of being on the path to mental health. However, modern day stressors still exist, even in an idyllic place like Frisco. Depression and anxiety account for 16 & 17 percent of mental health cases in Collin and Denton counties, respectively.

Because Frisco is located in both Collin and Denton counties, services may vary depending on which part of the city you live. Though similar, Collin county reports a provider to resident ratio of 1,086:1 while Denton county reports a ratio of 1,088:1; slightly higher than the Texas benchmark of 1,034:1. However, local area health care providers know they can do better and have mental health listed at number two of public health issues they are committed to improving. Planners know it’s possible as the state’s lowest provider to resident ratio is at 386:1.

Frisco’s Mental Health Differences

Frisco’s residents are susceptible to mental health issues like anyplace else in the country. Factors range from poverty, traffic and commuting and a seemingly never ending cost of living increases, which only add financial stress.

  • Numerous studies have established a direct correlation between financial stress and depression, anxiety and substance use disorders.
  • Frisco and the surrounding cities such as Dallas are known for being higher than the statewide average cost of living, with the cost of housing being the biggest stress factor.
  • A fair percentage of the population commutes to the Dallas area daily for work, with a commute duration of approximately 30 minutes. Traffic and commute stress has been shown to affect overall mental health.

Divorce Rate in Frisco Texas

Frisco Texas has a relatively low divorce rate at 8.27 percent. This number could be the result of various factors including Frisco’s 2018 ranking of the best place to live in the U.S. Other factors include the median age of residents in the middle 30s and being college educated. Nationally, there seems to be a correlation with getting married later in life and having a degree.

According to a 2016 report, 67.75 percent of Frisco residents are married. That the area is also considered more affluent may also be a reason the divorce rates are so low. Alimony and child support may entice couples to seek remedies other than legal. There are also over 180 marriage counselors in the area to help couples cope with their marital issues.

Mental Health Resources in Frisco

There are currently over 400 licensed counselors and mental health therapists in Frisco Texas. That’s more than one professional per 364 people in both Denton and Collin counties. Although Texas is considered to have a shortage of licensed mental health professionals, the number of professionals available in Frisco is well about the national level.

Challenges of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Frisco

With hundreds mental health professionals easily found on the Internet, it can be hard to decide which one suits you best. Most of these professionals have an online presence with positive reviews on local review sites, making it difficult to distinguish suitability.

Local health providers, health insurance companies and community organizations often offer a plethora of referrals. The downside is the paperwork you will need to do before you ever have a chance to sit down with a counselor and see if you’re a good fit. Red tape may also seem like an encumbrance, especially if your mental health needs are more urgent.
