Overview of Mental Health Resources in Pueblo, Colorado

Located in Colorado, Pueblo is the 9th largest city in the state. With a population of over 166,000 residents, area attractions include a visit to the Historic Arkansas River Project which is located in the Union Avenue Historic Commercial District.  Nestled within the “Banana Belt”, the area is a semi-arid desert and receives less rain or snow than other Colorado major cities.

Pueblo has a proud industrial heritage of steel-producing, but now is diversifying into four key areas of hemp, outdoor recreation, rail, and aerospace. The city is attractive to residents and visitors due to its low real estate market and cost of living compared to neighboring cities. AARP recognized it as one of the Best Places to Live in the USA and the city was considered the 6th most affordable place to live in America by the Cost of Living Index. Additionally, the city boasts a love of history as Livability.com named it one of the Top 10 Cities for Historic Preservation.

While there is a renewed interest in the future for economic grown, Pueblo is faced with several issues of crime; low incomes; lack of job opportunities; health and community beautification.  Of the city’s population, 25.3% live in poverty and of the county’s children live in poverty with 59.8% that qualify for free and reduced lunch. Health is a prevalent issue for the community as adults who reported that their health was generally poor or fair was nearly double (22.7%) the state’s 12.8% average as many citizens suffer from a disease, job-related injuries or those caused due to substance abuse. While the legalization of marijuana has added jobs for the community, it has placed a burden on Pueblo’s social services due to increased homeless and drug users.

When asked about mental health, a 15.3% reported that out of one month, they felt that their mental health was not good for eight or more days.  Mental health is an ongoing battle for the youth of Pueblo as 34.5% of high school students reported that within the past year, they felt sad or hopeless almost every day for 2 or more consecutive weeks. So much so, that the students no longer wanted to participate in their normal activities. The percentage of parents who are having behavioral or mental issues is high at 20.8% of young children ages 1-14 years.

Increased poverty, substance abuse, and poor health can contribute to stress and anxiety amongst a host of other mental health issues. Our Pueblo therapists can provide you with an individual treatment plan to help you during your journey to wellbeing.  Whether someone in your family suffers from a mental illness or you are one facing these issues, you do not have to do this alone at home, in relationships, or at work or school as our expert therapist stays educated on current industry trends in approaches, and treatments. Rest assured that during your session, while you are sharing your thoughts and feelings, you are receiving the latest up-to-date services.

When selecting your qualified Pueblo area professional, make sure that they are local and their office hours are compatible with yours. This ensures success when scheduling appointments and the ability to keep them with ease during your journey.  Questions to aid you during the research process are:

Why am I seeking help?
What are my goals in therapy?
Am I more comfortable with a man or a woman?
Are there any personal aspects I’m not willing to discuss?
Do I want to be able to lead the discussion, or have it led?
How long do I plan to attend therapy?
Does my problem need extra specialization?

It is important for you to find the right chemistry with your therapist as your therapy journey is about you and your needs. In many cases, a strong relationship with your therapist will aide in the success of your treatment as they will help you process the challenges that arise in your life. Take time to connect by viewing their profiles, bios, and blog posts. Once you have narrowed down the list of therapists that meet your needs, locations, and schedule, take time to call them for a phone interview to see if you like their style and if they were empathetic and interested. Mental health does not discriminate against race, age or gender and finding the right therapist does not need to add to that stress or confusion. Investing in you is important and we wish you the best in your personal journey of making a change for a better life. Our directory gives you therapists in the Pueblo area to check out.
