Mental Health Statistics and Concerns in Pasadena

While there is a lot of economic growth and opportunity in Pasadena and nearby Houston and The Woodlands, of course as with any place, there are problems that people face as well.

Economic stress is one issue that can have a ripple effect on individuals and families. The poverty rate in Pasadena is 19.6 percent. The income inequality rate in Pasadena is higher than the national average, and the median annual income of households in the city is less than the median annual income in the U.S. as a whole.

According to research from Houston’s The Menninger Clinic, there are an estimated seven million adults in Texas with mental illness and one million adults in the state who have serious mental illness. In Harris County, there are 1.1 million adults with mental illness, and 150,000 classified as having serious mental illness. The same research indicated that in Texas 8.45 percent of youths surveyed had at least one major depressive episode.

Only around 36 percent of adults with mental illness in Texas received treatment according to The State of Mental Health in America Report. More than 19 percent of surveyed adults with mental illness in Texas said they had unmet needs in terms of treatment and care.

Based on research from the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, 76 percent of people in Texas say they have a friend or family member who has experienced a mental health issue. 9 in 10 surveyed Texans said they felt it’s harder to talk about a mental health condition than a physical health condition.
