Overview of Mental Health Resources in in Miami, Florida

Considered the “Magic City” and the 43rd largest municipality in the United States, Miami is home to over 463,000 residents. Earning its popular nickname due to the public’s attraction of the tropical climates, beaches and acclaimed nature areas such as the Everglades and Biscayne National Park, the city is full of young professionals working in traditional professional careers while its neighbor, Miami Beach continues its reputation for fashion and entertainment. Popular among the nontraditional families, the Miami area is home to a large LGBT community and hosts one of the nation’s largest pride celebrations.

Tourism drives Miami’s job market. Home to the largest cruise port in the world, thousands of jobs depend on the 22 million people that fly into the Miami International Airport and the 5 million passengers boarding ships in Port Miami. Due to the increased tourism population, Miami is considered one of the worst cities in the United States to drive in due as commuters spend nearly 30 minutes driving to work. Public transportation has made strides but for commuters that live farther inland, there is a lack of reliable public transportation. Aggressive driving is part of the Miami culture causing stress of the local

Recently, Miami was recognized for its current mental health crisis. The city recently reported that 31.9% of its population under the age of 65 does not have health insurance. Additionally, the urban area is considered to have the largest ratio of individuals with a serious mental illness outside hospitals and treatment centers. Instead, they are found on the streets or in the county’s jail adding to the city’s homeless population.  An estimated 9 percent of the surrounding Miami area as reported a serious mental illness, like bipolar disorder, but only an estimated 1 percent receives help.

With such a large population reporting lack of health insurance or the stress of the daily commute, Miami’s residents have their share of problems to deal with each day.

With effective therapy and treatment, many individuals with mental health issues do live successful and productive lives. It is important to take the first step and decide what medical symptoms you suffer from before beginning your research.  Next, decide the frequency of sessions, the location of the therapist and their hours that will work best with your schedule. Ensuring that their office hours are compatible with yours will allow you to keep your appointment and benefit from continual treatment. Before connecting with your potential therapist, here are a few questions to consider during the research process:

  •    Why am I seeking help?
  •    What are my goals in therapy?
  •    Am I more comfortable with a man or a woman?
  •    Are there any personal aspects I’m not willing to discuss?
  •    Do I want to be able to lead the discussion, or have it led?
  •    How long do I plan to attend therapy?
  •    Does my problem need extra specialization?

The professional you select should have the ability to address your issue as our community has a variety of different skill sets. Your comfort level is important as well as you will be sharing your thoughts and feelings during each session. Take time to connect with our therapist community by viewing their profiles, bios, and blog posts to see if they have helped others with similar ailments like your own. You should also verify that the professional you plan to select has a current license and meets the required training to treat you. It is important for your care that they are current on medical requirements. For many cases, the success of your treatment depends on developing a strong relationship with your therapist. Once you have narrowed down the list of practitioners that meet your requirements, your next step is to schedule a time for a phone interview. This allows you the opportunity to see if you can converse with them with ease, understand their style and see if they were empathetic and interested in you.
