An Overview of Mental Health in La Habra, California

Located in Orange County, 62,466 residents are fortunate to reside in La Habra, California. This multicultural city is primarily home to people of Hispanic or Latino origin, representing 56.7 percent of the population. White (25.5 percent) and Asian (12.2 percent) ethnic groups also comprise a significant portion of the local populace.

La Habra boasts a small town feel while enjoying a multitude of amenities and pleasant Southern California weather. Residents take advantage of the comfortable year-round temperatures at city parks and bikeways. Families have access to a children’s museum, playhouse, camps and recreation activities. A strong sense of community and outdoor exercise benefit the emotional well-being of those in La Habra. However, mental health is impacted by many variables with both internal and external forces at play. Regardless of the cause, professional counseling can make a positive difference when a neighbor, friend or loved one suffers from mental illness.

California’s Mental Health Statistics

In comparison to the rest of the country, the state of California is relatively better off in terms of psychological health. Just over 17 percent of adults residing in the Golden State have some degree of mental health problem, compared to the US rate of 18.3 percent. Although the proportion is lower than 43 other states, it still amounts to over five million people suffering in California alone. The level of concern is compounded by the report that over 62 percent of Californians do not seek needed treatment.

Impact of Finances on Mental Health in La Habra

Most can attest that one of the biggest stressors in life is money, or lack thereof. In La Habra, the economy appears strong according to several indicators. Both recent (2.3 percent) and future (39.5 percent) job growth are improving at an above average rate compared to the rest of the nation, 1.6 and 38 percent respectively. The median household annual income of $65,799 is higher than the national median of $55,322.

Yet, the people of La Habra need to stretch their dollar further than those living in other areas due to the high cost of living. California’s index of 138 is high compared to the set national Cost of Living Index of 100. La Habra is slightly more expensive, with an index of 141. The two categories with the most significant impact include housing and transportation. The median home price of $436,200 is more than double the median US property value of $205,000. Nearly 80 percent of workers drive alone to their place of business, averaging around a 30-minute commute.

When most of the income in a household goes to necessities, it can be stressful. For the 13.7 percent of the La Habra residents living in poverty, this anxiety is pointedly multiplied. Money issues can impact self-esteem and cause friction in relationships. Individual and marriage counseling helps foster positive coping strategies and builds effective communication so partners can tackle these difficulties together.

The Challenge of Finding a Therapist in La Habra, California

Anxiety and depression exacerbated by an external factor, such as lack of financial resources, is one area that is amenable to counseling. The people of La Habra may also seek counseling for psychological disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression or Schizophrenia. Overall, therapeutic intervention is a highly effective form of treatment for mental illness.

Why don’t more people seek the help they need? Some may lack health insurance for mental health services. Others may perceive a stigma surrounding psychological care, such as feeling afraid to be different or judged. Many do not know how to begin the process of locating a licensed counselor that would be a good fit.

In La Habra, California, there are a variety of counselors to choose from. When looking for care for yourself or a loved one, it is important to connect with someone you feel comfortable with and is trained in your area of need.

Others focus on solely adults or adolescents, and many provide services to individuals, groups, families and couples.
