An Overview of Mental Health in Hoboken, New Jersey

Well-known for being the birthplace of famous singer Frank Sinatra, Hoboken is a city in New Jersey that features a blend of both historical sites and modern attractions. Located within Hudson County, the city offers beautiful views of the Hudson River, especially from the standpoint of Castle Point Lookout or from either Pier C Park or Pier A Park. Washington Street allows residents to feel as if they’re walking into the past with architecture that has remained historically intact. The street is also a popular spot for catching a bite to eat or getting a drink at one of the many bars.

Demographics for Hoboken, New Jersey

According to data gathered by the United States Census, Hoboken has a population estimate of 53,455 as of 2018. Residents have diverse ethnic origins and are broken up into 82.3 percent white, 15.8 percent Hispanic, 9.1 percent Asian, and 3.1 percent African American. 16.5 percent of residents are foreign-born. There are 942 veterans living in the city, and 6.4 percent of the population is over the age of 65. The community is very well educated with a high school graduation rate of 94.4 percent and a bachelor’s or higher rate of 78.7 percent for adults over the age of 25. Only 3.4 percent of individuals under the age of 65 are uninsured. Hoboken has a crime rate of 1,781 for every 100,000 people, which is lower than the national rate but slightly higher than the state rate.

The median household income in Hoboken is $136,402 and the per capita income is $86,413, both of which are more than double than the nation medians. The poverty rate for the city is 9.1 percent, which is below the national average. However, some residents might struggle to meet the high cost of living in Hoboken. Overall, Hoboken has a cost of living index of 181, with housing being the most influential factor.  32.7 of people own their homes, and the median value of owned units is $693,400. The average cost of rent is $3,374.

The Trouble Finding a Suitable Therapist in Hoboken

In the past year, there were approximately 663,000 adults with a mental illness who did not receive any treatment for their condition. This makes up 59.9 percent of adults with any types of mental illness in the state. Additionally, 57.8 percent of youths with a major depressive episode did not receive mental health services.

One of the most common reasons people are unable to receive medical or mental health care is that they are unable to afford the price of treatment. In the state of New Jersey, approximately 35 percent of adults with a disability could not see a doctor due to costs. Another issue is the lack of providers in the area. In New Jersey, there are about 500 individuals for every mental health provider in the state. A third reason people might not receive the help they need is a stigma surrounding mental illness. In 2011, Hoboken was the first city in the nation to declare itself a “stigma-free zone” in an attempt to encourage more people to seek and receive treatment without fear of retaliation or judgment.

The Consequences of Untreated Mental Illness in Hoboken

With so many people in New Jersey with mental illness not receiving the care they need, it is important to consider the consequences of a mental health disorder going untreated. Several ways individuals and communities can be affected include:

  • Poverty and homelessness
  • Incarceration
  • Suicide
  • Substance abuse and drug overdose
  • Job instability and poor school performance
  • Divorce and relationship issues

Mental health issues rarely go away on their own. Accessing care allows an individual to avoid these problematic consequences and achieve a better quality of life.
