An Overview of Mental Health in Kettering, Ohio

It can be difficult to understand the importance of good mental health and its relation to an individual’s day-to-day activities. From relations with one’s spouse to how words and actions are perceived can all be seriously impacted when problems like anxiety, depression and other mood disorders begin to develop. 18.5 percent of adults in the United States experience mental illness annually, and when this occurs, many may not recognize the signs and symptoms right away. People all over the United States, such as those who live in Kettering, Ohio, may need help understanding the importance of reaching out for help concerning their poor mental health before it is too late.

The Impact of Demographics on Mental Health in Kettering

55,705 people live in Kettering, and the city has seen a small decrease in its population in the past several years. Despite that decrease, the density per square mile in the city has been elevating, and this may be due to the area’s affordable cost of living and housing market.

These demographic factors may be advantageous to those who are moving into Kettering; however, those who already live in the city might be feeling the pinch of the increasing density. Shrinking free space, the close proximity of one’s neighbors and less room to expand might cause feelings of anxiety, claustrophobia and the sensation that there is no escaping the encroaching real estate. This can be especially problematic for those who are already experiencing anxiety issues.

Mental Health and Employment in Kettering

Administrative jobs are the most popular employment sector in Kettering, with 14.3 percent of the population working in the field. Other popular jobs include those in the educational and managerial sectors. The number of people working in the city has seen in an increase in the past several years, thanks to the unemployment and poverty levels being lower than the national averages. The current unemployment rate in the city is 3.9 percent, which is only 0.1 lower than the overall level in the United States.

Despite this positive outlook, there are those in Kettering who might be experiencing poor mental health due to their employment. Long hours, difficult relations with a manager or coworkers and a daily commute into nearby Dayton may be causing mental health issues such as:

  • New or increased feelings of anxiety
  • Unstable or changing moods
  • Depression related to feelings of hopelessness about job advancement

While some who suffer from these problems may want to dismiss them as feelings related to the daily grind, they might only increase and begin to affect work performance and relations with family, so it is a good idea for them to seek treatment as soon as possible.

The Challenge of Finding Mental Health Treatment in Kettering

Those in Kettering who need to find help for their mental health issues face a variety of challenges. 8.9 percent of the city’s population is disabled, and these individuals may have problems reaching a treatment facility. In addition, there are only 153 mental health professionals available per 100,000 people in Montgomery County, where the city is located, which may cause a delay in treatment for some individuals.

Poverty may also present a challenge for the mentally ill. Those in the city with disabilities and who face poverty may also suffer from some type of mental illness too and struggle with problems such as:

  • Reaching public transportation hubs
  • A lack of health insurance that covers mental health treatment
  • An unawareness of their own mental condition
  • Old or broken medical/disability supplies that impede movement

Impoverished people in Kettering are much less likely to receive treatment for their poor mental health, and women and the elderly are most at risk for succumbing to these issues when they cannot reach out for help.
