An Overview of Mental Health in Huntersville, North Carolina

From NASCAR races to idyllic historical streets, Huntersville, North Carolina is a charming town with plenty of resources for locals and tourists alike. However, it can be difficult for many residents to find access to qualified mental health care providers. If you or someone you know is searching for mental health resources, learn where you can find them, as well as some common challenges that residents face, today.

Mental Health Statistics in Huntersville, North Carolina

Throughout the nation, nearly 1 in 5 American adults live with a mental health condition. Of those individuals, approximately 56 percent did not receive treatment for their mental illness. There are many reasons individuals don’t receive treatment, but one common issue is lack of local resources, or having no knowledge of those resources.
For youth living in North Carolina, the figures are even worse than the national average. 11.4 percent of adolescents experienced a major depressive episode in one year, which is slightly higher than the national average. 59 percent of those adolescents did not receive any treatment for their depression.
On the county level, Mecklenburg County reported that 15 percent of high school students made a suicide plan. This is slightly higher than the state average of 14 percent. However, the percentage of adults in the county who reported more than 8 poor mental health days in the past month is 10 percent in the county and 15 percent in the state.

Contributing Factors for Mental Health Issues

There are many factors that can contribute to mental health issues in a community. While none of these environmental factors can completely predict mental illness, they can be strong indicators that you or a loved one may need assistance.
Huntersville, North Carolina has a poverty rate of just 5.05 percent. The median household income of $90,633 puts it far above the national average of $55,322. Poverty can be a strong risk factor for mental illness, but so can overwork and lack of leisure time. Be sure that you and your loved ones have a healthy work/life balance and look for signs of overwork, exhaustion or lack of work opportunities.
18.3 percent of Mecklenburg County adults reported drinking to excess in 2017. Alcohol and drug use have been strongly linked with increased risk of depression. While the rate is still high, this is average throughout the state, with the highest rate being 20.7 percent. Excessive drinking can not only lead to depression, it can also be a symptom that an individual is already experiencing depression or another serious mental illness. Don’t wait until excessive drinking becomes life threatening.
Drug abuse is also positively correlated with mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety disorders and bipolar disorder. In 2016, 19.7 individuals per 100,000 in North Carolina experienced a drug overdose death. If you suspect someone near you is struggling with drug addiction, don’t wait until it’s too late to reach out for help.
Don’t wait to contact a local mental health professional if you believe someone in Huntersville is struggling with mental illness. None of these challenges can directly cause mental illness, but they are all strongly linked with the possibility of a mental health crisis.

Divorce in North Carolina

In 2017, there were 3,256 divorces throughout Mecklenburg County. Divorce and mental illness are positively correlated. This means that going through a divorce puts you at greater risk of mental illness, and struggling with a mental illness can increase your risk of divorce.
Divorce can be an extremely stressful and traumatic event. Your entire family can be subject to mental health challenges through a divorce, so be prepared to watch for warning signs throughout your family. If you’re experiencing a divorce, consider contacting a local therapist. Whether you wish to pursue couples counseling or individual therapy, professional assistance can help you overcome the mental health obstacles that you may be facing.
