Overview of Mental Health Resources in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

We don’t hear a whole lot about Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the news. It’s not a city like Los Angeles of New York. However, Milwaukee does have its own issues just like every other city in America.

Milwaukee is the largest city in Wisconsin. It lies on the shores of Lake Michigan. It is culturally diverse. Over 60% of the population is non-white. The city is on par with the rest of America as far as cost of living is concerned. However, Milwaukeeans have their struggles. The city suffers from a lot of poverty. Poverty like we see in Milwaukee can lead to a lot of mental health issues.

Mental Health Statistics for Milwaukee

What a lot of people don’t know is that Milwaukee has one of the highest alcohol abuse rates in the country. It also sees its share of drug related deaths. Milwaukee is seeing a rise in both alcohol and opiate related health issues.

The number of people with mental health issues in Milwaukee is rising each year. In 2009, only 12% reported a mental health issue in the past month. This number has risen to 19% as of 2015. Sadly, the suicide rate has also doubled since 2003.

One interesting statistic is for the average number of poor mental health days each month. Milwaukee averages about 4 per month. The average for the rest of the United States is only about 2 per month.

What could be leading to these high numbers? As you will see, there are a few reasons for this polarity.

Impact of Not Receiving Treatment in Milwaukee

Everybody with a mental health issue should seek treatment. In an ideal world, everybody would have access to health care. Nobody would roam the streets, suffering from untreated mental illness. However, we don’t live in an ideal world.

Lack of proper mental health treatment can lead to:

  • Higher suicide rates
  • Increasing divorce rates
  • Unemployment
  • Overcrowded jails and institutions
  • Homelessness
  • Domestic Violence
  • Drug and alcohol abuse

It is vital that people with serious mental health issues find treatment. A lot of people in Milwaukee don’t have health insurance. Many more simply don’t know how to find a good mental health care professional. Therefore, we have created a one-stop mental health directory.

What Makes Milwaukee Unique When it Comes to Mental Health?

Every city has its own problems. Some cities are concerned with crime and gang violence. Others are more worried about education and unemployment. Milwaukee has several factors that contribute to higher mental health issues:

  • Climate: Milwaukee is on the shores of Lake Michigan. In the winter, it can be very cold and desolate in this part of the country. If you’ve ever seen a Green Bay Packers game you know just how cold and windy it can be. Cold weather can lead to isolation. This isolation can cause and exacerbate mental health illnesses. It can also make it less likely for people to seek treatment.
  • Unemployment Rate: Milwaukee has an unemployment rate of  6.8%. This is almost twice that of the national average of 3.9%
  • Socioeconomic Factors: People who live in Milwaukee make a lot less than the rest of Wisconsin. The median household  income for Wisconsin is $57,000. The median income for Milwaukee is only $38,000. Part of this is due to the education levels in the city. Less than 9% have graduate degrees or higher. Most are existing with just a high school education.

Divorce Rate in Milwaukee

Milwaukee’s divorce rate is 11%. However, the rate of people who have never married is 54%. This number is very high. It may reflect Milwaukeeans fear of marriage.

These numbers may also reflect the need for marriage counseling in Milwaukee. It is proven that couple who receive counseling enjoy longer and healthier relationships. It is important that the people of Milwaukee have access to couples’ therapy information. Our directory will do just that.

Mental Health Resources in Milwaukee

Wisconsin ranks near the bottom when it comes to mental health resources. Here are the figures for the number of mental health professionals per 100,000 people.

  • 97 counselors (ranks 27th in the US)
  • 1 psychiatrist specializing in children (27th in the US)
  • 1 psychiatric nurse practitioner (42nd in US)
  • 22 psychologists (30th in the US)

These numbers do reflect the shortage of mental health professionals in Wisconsin. This makes it even more important that Milwaukeeans be able to find a counselor when they need one. There are fewer to choose from. These therapists are overbooked and overworked. Finding a mental health professional with an opening is very difficult in Milwaukee.

E-Counseling Solves the Challenge of Finding a Therapist in Milwaukee

E-Counseling is a way for people to find mental health professionals. Regardless of the time of day, our directory is available. The directory will help navigate users through the confusing world of mental health treatment.

Everyone should know how to find a good mental health professional. The E-counseling directory makes that possible.
