Mental Health in Lauderhill, Florida

The city of Lauderhill, Florida is part of the Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area. Proximity to the ocean, golf courses, and numerous other amenities benefit the 71,970 residents. Demographically, Lauderhill is home to a diverse group of people including 78.6% black or African American, 10.1% white, and 9.3% Hispanic or Latino.

Throughout the country, 18.3% of adults are personally affected by mental illness. Florida’s rate is slightly lower, with a prevalence of 17.3%. Despite the many amenities of the area, the people of Lauderhill may experience environmental factors that increase emotional distress. Exposure to natural disasters, financial struggles, or victimization causes significant strain. Fortunately, there are psychological resources in place to assist those impacted by these and other life situations that necessitate mental health support.

Climate in Lauderhill, Florida

With average temperatures ranging from 68 to 84 degrees, the population of Lauderhill enjoys outdoor activities year-round. In addition, both air (17% higher quality) and pollution index (86% healthier) are better than the national average. Fresh air and sunshine encourage outdoor exercise and socialization. Maintaining health and creating relationships have a positive impact on overall emotional well-being.

The disadvantage of living near the Florida coast, however, is the increased frequency of hurricanes. Annually, Broward County has 24 instances of natural disasters compared to the national average of 13. In addition to hurricanes (14), other water-related calamities include floods, heavy rain, and tropical storms. A severe weather threat causes significant anxiety. Suffering from property destruction, displacement or bodily harm leads to worry, depression, and grief. Therapeutic support helps people cope with these emotional difficulties, heal, and move forward.

Lauderhill Cost of Living and Poverty Statistics

Both individuals and families struggle financially in Lauderhill. The median household income of $37,597 is lower than the national median of $55,322. Although incomes are generally less, the Cost of Living Index of 101 is still commensurate with the national average. This means that expenses are the same as other areas, with less money to spend.

The poverty rate of 23.7% in Lauderhill is 57% higher than the national average of 15.1%. The unemployment rate of 8.2% (compared to 4.7% nationally) suggests that those living in poverty may have a difficult time finding a better-paying job to improve their financial situation.

Females are much more likely to live in poverty, particularly in the 25-34 age range. With 30.8% of the population unmarried with children, it is likely that parents, especially mothers, raising children on a single income negatively impacts them monetarily. An overwhelming 76% of people living below the poverty level are black. Money concerns increase levels of stress and over time can lead to severe anxiety and depression. Some therapists offer flexibility in payment, such as a sliding scale based on income. Professional support helps increase self-esteem and decrease feelings of hopelessness.

Crime Rates in Lauderhill

Annually across the nation, there are approximately 2,745 crimes committed per 100,000 people. Unfortunately, residents of Lauderhill experience crimes at a much higher rate of 4,747 per 100,000. Even more concerning is the frequency of crimes considered violent. Residents are violently victimized at nearly three times the national rate, 917 versus 383 per 100,000 people respectively. These types of crimes include homicide, rape, robbery and assault. Experiencing these crimes firsthand, having a loved one violated, or witnessing an offense has the potential to have serious implications for one’s mental health. The emotions of grief and trauma are difficult to navigate without support. Professional counseling helps people successfully move past the pain and regain control.

Access to Care in Lauderhill, Florida

In the United States, an estimated 56.4% of people with mental illness do not receive related care. In Florida, this heightens to 61.4%. In Lauderhill, this may be exacerbated by a lack of financial resources or adequate health insurance. In Broward County, there are 139 mental health providers per 100,00 residents. Local therapists are available to support the emotional needs of the people in Lauderhill.
