Guide to Mental Health Resources in Garland, Texas

Garland, Texas is located primarily in Dallas County and comprises part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. It has a population of 226,876 as of the 2010 census which makes it the 12th largest city in Texas and the 87th most-populous city in the United States. Historically, Garland has benefited from low poverty rates amongst its residents with a range of industries supporting the city’s economy. These include electronics manufacturing, steel fabrication, hat manufacturing, dairy production, and food processing. It has since grown to house one of the largest data centers in the country. Yet, with these positive features of the city, this does not mean that the city of Garland or its residents are immune to the rising problem of mental health issues that seem to be increasing among all populations.

Access to Mental Health Services

Like many other cities that are dealing with the challenges of a rising rate of mental illness among its population, Garland is lagging behind in the ability to keep up with the need for these services. According to data of the Dallas area, Garland has an estimated 121 mental health professionals for every 100,000 people.

The lack of resources in Garland seems to be indicative of a trend throughout the state of Texas. According to Mental Health America, Texas ranked 39th overall compared to the rest of the states in the U.S. The ranking takes into consideration access to care as well as the prevalence of mental illness within the state. Clearly, there is room for improvement to address the needs of residents.

If you are dealing with mental health issues that include depression, anxiety, or other conditions that are having a negative impact on your life you may want to reach out for help. If you are at this point, we want to help you in your search for a Garland mental health professional or therapist. We can connect you with professionals that may be able to provide you assistance and work with you to gain control of your life again.

Recognizing that you need support is not always easy, but when you do take the step to reach out for help we want to make finding a therapist in Garland as easy for you as possible. You may not know where to start, so we suggest that you first begin with thinking about what your own needs are to determine which services might best work for you.

Where to Begin Your Search

Starting with asking yourself what your needs and preferences are is the best place to begin. Some key questions will help clarify your reasons for seeking a mental health professional and can also identify the best form of treatment for you. Keeping the answers to these questions in mind can help when you are reviewing the different services and professionals available to you. A few questions you might want to start with are:

  • What outcome are you hoping for by attending therapy?
  • Over what time frame are you able to commit to attending sessions?
  • Are you more comfortable speaking with a man or a woman about your life and problems?
  • Are there issues that you are dealing with that may be best treated by someone with a specialization in that field? (for example, if you are dealing with an eating disorder)

These and other questions can help focus your efforts in finding the right mental health professional for you. Working with someone who is the right fit, and who you feel comfortable communicating with, can make all the difference when it comes to obtaining effective treatment.

Does Your Health Insurance Cover Mental Health Services?

For many people, the cost of mental health services will have a significant impact on access to care. It is worthwhile to speak with your health insurance company to find out if they cover any or all the services that you may need. Many insurers use their own network of professionals that are on a preferred list and you may find that this is a much more economical route for you and may mean less out-of-pocket costs.
