An Overview of Mental Health in Norwalk, Connecticut

Norwalk, Connecticut is a beautiful coastal town located along the Long Island Sound. According to the most recent United States Census Bureau, Norwalk is home to 89,005 residents year-round. A rich history, multitude of amenities and close proximity to New York City make this an ideal place to live or visit.

Psychological disorders, from mild to severe, span across all geographic locations, races, religions and income brackets. Within the realm of Norwalk’s refreshing sea air, historic lighthouses and marinas there are individuals feeling depressed, stressed and overwhelmed. Even for mild mental health issues, counseling helps people cope with the pain and learn how to live their best life.

Connecticut Mental Health Statistics

When an emotional, behavioral or mental disorder significantly impacts daily functioning it is considered a serious mental illness. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, over 4 percent of adults in the United States are impacted by psychological disorders that require significant therapeutic intervention. An additional 14 percent of the US population suffers from mild to moderate mental health concerns.

According to Mental Health America, the overall prevalence of mental illness in Connecticut is on par with national statistics, ranking 27 out of 51 states including the District of Columbia. The state does an excellent job in providing access to care, placing seventh in the country in terms of treatment and insurance coverage.

However, considering the entire spectrum of emotional needs across the state, only 47.5 percent of the Connecticut population with mental health issues seek the help they need. This is slightly higher than the average of other areas across the United States, in which 43.1 percent of those with psychological needs seek counseling.

Economy and Cost of Living in Norwalk, Connecticut

Whether you want to frequent the local museums, do some shopping or enjoy seafood in an upscale restaurant, you need money. Those who live in this “Oyster Town” have a higher median household income of $76,051 than the national average of $53,482. The unemployment rate of 4.8 percent is slightly lower than the US average of 5.2 percent. The economic future of the town is positive as well, with future job growth predicted at 38.2 percent over the next decade.

Despite the booming economy, not all residents of Norwalk are financially well-off when income versus expense are considered. Norwalk’s Cost of Living Index of 143 is 43 percent higher than the national average of 100. All aspects of living in the area are more expensive including housing, goods and services, transportation, groceries and utilities. It can be overwhelming and extremely stressful living paycheck to paycheck. Even though stressed, health care costs may negatively impact residents’ willingness to seek counseling.

Marriage and Divorce Rates in Norwalk

Of the 35,450 households in Norwalk, 21,473 are comprised of family units housing an average 2.44 people per home. Nearly 50 percent of the population is married with a divorce rate of 11.54 percent. This is much higher than the state divorce average rate of 6.3 percent, which is the fourth lowest in the country. The widowed population is commensurate with the national rate, falling marginally under six percent.

The death of a spouse is the top stressor in terms of life events. Those who have lost a loved one benefit from therapy focused on coping with grief and loss. Divorce has the second most negative impact on emotional health. A successful partnership takes work, and marriage counseling helps couples settle conflict and improve their relationship.

Norwalk’s Therapeutic Support Systems

Given Connecticut’s strong access to care and Norwalk’s many amenities, it is not surprising that there are many local therapeutic services to choose from. When looking for psychological services, consider experience and areas of specialty. Some areas that Norwalk therapists focus on include anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma. Services are provided in many formats such as individual, group, family, couples and even online. No mental illness or life event is too big or too small for intervention.

Sometimes it is hard to know how to sort through all of the support choices available to you or a loved one. At E-Counseling we understand that the process can be overwhelming, especially in times of significant stress or sadness. Our online directory helps you find and link with a licensed professional that is right for you.
