An Overview of Mental Health in Pompano Beach, Florida

Pompano Beach is a city alongside the Atlantic Ocean in Florida’s Gold Coast region. About two miles north of Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach also offers easy access to Miami (about 40 miles away).

Pompano Beach offers famous coral reefs, golden sand beaches, a variety of water sports, and year-round warm weather (with some nice breezes) for its visitors and residents.

As a well-known city, Pompano Beach also provides a variety of medical treatment options — including a variety of therapists, support groups, psychiatrists, and other types of care for mental illnesses (i.e. schizophrenia, anxiety, or bipolar disorder) and/or substance abuse.

Poverty and Mental Illness in Pompano Beach, Florida

As of July 2017, Pompano Beach had 110,473 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The poverty level for Pompano Beach is nearly 21%, which is substantially higher than both the state average of 14% and the U.S. average of 12.3%. Nearly 29% of Pompano Beach residents under the age of 65 do not have health insurance, which is significantly higher than the state average of 15.9% and the national average of 10.2%.

Therefore, finances could present a challenge to Pompano Beach, Florida residents who need mental health care services.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), poverty worsens the symptoms of serious mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Poverty also makes it more probable that a person will experience a serious mental illness. Finally, anyone who has a mental health condition such as depression or schizophrenia is more likely to end up living in poverty after symptoms begin to appear. This applies to people of all education levels and professions.

Mental Health Statistics for Pompano Beach, Florida

According to a report from the American Psychological Association, Florida has nearly 2,900 active psychologists — one of the highest numbers in the Southeast region of the United States. Such a large number of psychologists indicates how pervasive the problem of mental illness is among people throughout the state.

According to SAMHSA’s Florida Behavioral Health Barometer for 2015, the state has mental illness prevalence rates that are slightly lower than the national average.

The percentage of major depressive episodes among Florida children ages 12-17 in 2013-2014 was 10.5% —half a percentage point lower than the U.S. average of 11% for the same period.

The average for serious mental illnesses among Florida adults in 2013-2014 was 3.7% — again half a percentage point lower than the national average of 4.2%.

Between 2010 and 2014, nearly 37% of Florida adults with any mental illness received counseling or other related treatment. This was somewhat lower than the national average of nearly 43% for the same period. It is unclear whether the lower incidence of adults receiving mental health services was caused by the usual stigma that accompanies any mental illness diagnosis, geographically or financially inconvenient access to mental health care, and/or other factors such as Florida’s year-round sunny weather (which can reduce or eliminate symptoms of some mental illnesses such as seasonal affective disorder or SAD).
