There are many recreational activities that residents of Orland Park are able to enjoy including trips to Lake Segdewick and the Centennial Park Aquatic Center during the summer and the Winter Wonderland Ice Rink in the winter. The city is also in the midst of the Downtown Triangle District Project which will give more recreational and economic opportunities to residents in the village.

The unemployment rate of the city is at 3.8 percent, which is lower than both the state and national rate. The main employers of residents in the city are the Consolidated High School District 230, the Orland School District 135, and Jewel-Osco. The cost of living index of Orland Park is a bit high at 110 as a result of expensive housing, but many residents are still thriving financially. The median household income is at $85,802, and the city has a very low poverty rate of 4.3 percent. Apart from economic success, residents are able to benefit from lower than average crime rates and high graduation rates.

While there is certainly a positive outlook for many of those living in Orland Park, every community has individuals who suffer. Mental health issues like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and substance abuse disorders are becoming more prevalent in America and are considered the primary cause of disabilities countrywide. If you or a loved one are struggling with a mental illness in Orland Park, it is important you are aware of what resources are available to help.

The Challenge of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Orland Park, Illinois

One of the most daunting challenges for those struggling with mental illnesses is trouble accessing mental health care resources. Although 20 percent of Americans, which comes out to more than 40 million Americans, have some sort of mental health condition, only 44 percent of adults with a mental illness receive treatment.

On one hand, there has been a positive increase in the amount of Americans who have an insurance plan and are covered for their mental health concerns. However, there are still many individuals who are not insured and state that they cannot see a health provider due to the cost.  In Orland Park, 5.6 percent of residents under the age of 65 are uninsured, and 15.38 percent adults living with a disability in the state of Illinois report they could not see a doctor due to costs.

On the other hand, accessibility to mental health providers in the country has become a growing issue. There simply aren’t enough therapists to meet the growing needs of mental health care in the country, and the situation is expected to get worse if change doesn’t occur. In Illinois, there is a rate of one mental health provider per every 530 residents. In fact, Illinois is in a state of mental health care crisis as access to treatment has become a growing issue. Budget cuts between the years 2009 and 2012 resulted in the closing of several facilities in the state. The result was an increase in emergency room visits and incarcerations of those with mental illnesses.
