Effects of Untreated Mental Health Concerns in Passaic

One of the city’s largest issues, along with the rest of Passaic County, is substance abuse.

Alcohol was the most abused substance in the city with Heroin following close behind. However, heroin was the substance the most people were treated for in the entire county with 1973 reported admissions. Substance abuse issues often stem from mental health disorders like depression and anxiety and are prevalent among homeless individuals and communities living in poverty.

Although New Jersey as a state has a low suicide rate compared to the rest of the United States, these rates continue to increase. In 2016, the state had a total of 689 suicide deaths. Individuals who do not receive treatment for their mental illnesses are at increased risks of suicide. The risk is especially high among teenagers and young adults since it is a leading cause of death of people aged 10 to 34.
