Overview of Mental Health in Miami Gardens, Florida

Miami Gardens in Miami-Dade County, Florida is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area. It was last counted to have a population of 113,750 reported by the 2017 U.S. Census Bureau. The city takes up 19.02 square miles. The average household income is $47,679 and the poverty rate is almost 24%. Miami Gardens’ economy is specialized in Transportation and Warehousing; Public Administration; Administration, Support, and Waste Management Services. The population of Miami Gardens, FL is almost 70% Black, 25% Hispanic, and a little less than 4% White. Approximately 32% of the residents speak a non-English language and 87.1% are U.S. citizens.

City Concerns

It is reported by the Florida Council for Community Mental Health that Florida ranks 50th in the country for per-capita public mental health spending. The state spends approximately $39 per resident, which is significantly behind the national average of $129 per capita. This amount is less per person regarding mental health services than it was in the 1950’s in consideration of inflation. For this reason, individuals suffering from mental health issues and their loved ones must often overcome difficult obstacles to get effective, proper treatment. The report states that lack of treatment could lead to unnecessary disability, unemployment, substance abuse, homelessness, inappropriate incarceration, suicide, and difficult lives. Florida has a slightly higher rate (13.84% per 100,000 population) of suicide compared to the national average (12.93%). For this reason, 24 of 32 law enforcement agencies in Miami-Dade County have implemented or are in the process of implementing Crisis Intervention Team programs.

A clinical professor at the University of Miami reports that the Miami area is supposed to be a very diverse community, but it is incredibly separated by ethnicity, nationality, and income. Nathanial Sandler further states that there is a complex class hierarchy in Miami that behaves differently than other areas in the country. Although the Caucasian demographic is the minority in the area, they have access to mental health resources more so than the other ethnicities. It is speculated that the stigma regarding receiving treatment is higher in non-white ethnicities.

In 2015, the divorce rate in Florida was 8.4% compared to the country’s rate of 6.9%. The rate of dissolutions in the same year was 4.0% for Florida and 3.1 for the U.S.
