An Overview of Mental Health in Hendersonville, Tennessee

While most of the world is familiar with Nashville, Tennessee, few have heard of nearby Hendersonville, even though it’s home to some of country music’s rich and famous. Built around Old Hickory Lake in Sumner County, the city draws those who love water sports such as skiing and boating. In fact, the outdoors is a big part of life in Hendersonville off the water as well. Two well-equipped parks, Drake’s Creek and Veterans, offer plenty of room for sports, running and walking, playground time, and picnics. In addition to all this, the proximity to all that Nashville offers has made Hendersonville a fast-growing community.

With a population of 55,153 people as of 2014, Hendersonville has maintained the feel of a small southern town, even as close as it is to a major city. The population is predominantly White (84.9 percent), followed by Black (7.4 percent) and Hispanic (3.6 percent). The estimated median household income was $65,152 in 2016, significantly higher than the state figure of $48,547. Home values are higher than average as well; the estimated median value of homes and condos in 2016 was $240,442 as compared to $157,700 for the state. Most households (70.8 percent) are made up of families.

Though the city is wealthy by Tennessee standards, the cost of living index in Hendersonville is still lower than average for the United States, 89.7 as compared to 100. Another perk to living in this town is the low crime rate. In 2016, law enforcement reported 103.9 incidents per 100,000 in the population, which is less than half the rate for the United States (280.5). The weather also appeals to many people. Though summers can be very humid, winters are mild with very little snow or ice.

Community Health Needs of Hendersonville, Tennessee

Not surprising given the community’s focus on staying active, Hendersonville ranks fourth out of Tennessee’s 95 counties on the residents’ overall health. However, that doesn’t mean the people living in Hendersonville don’t have any health-related challenges. According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s County Health Rankings for 2018, residents of Sumner County reported 4.5 days of poor mental health over the previous 30 days, which was equal to the figure for the state as a whole. Twelve percent of the residents reported frequent mental distress.

Family Mental Health Needs in Hendersonville, Tennessee

Marital and family discord are some of the primary issues that lead Hendersonville residents to seek mental health services. Sumner County recorded 747 divorces in 2017 for a divorce rate of 4.1 per 1,000 people in the population. A U.S. News & World Report article from January 2016 called “Minding the Kids in Divorce: Minimizing the Mental Health Impact” points out that while children may be more resilient through a family split than previously thought, professional help for them as well as the adults involved is absolutely critical.
