A part of the Sacramento Metropolitan Area in Sacramento County, Rancho Cordova had an estimated population of 69,482 as of 2016. A winner of the All-America City award in 2010, Rancho Cordova nevertheless faces challenges in which mental health plays a factor.

Mental Health Statistics in Rancho Cordova

Health care consortium Kaiser Permanente identified access to behavioral health services in Sacramento County as one of its top-prioritized health needs in a 2016 assessment. The report named the following conditions as significant mental health concerns in the area:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia

Daily stress caused by difficulties in meeting basic needs, such as housing or food, was also cited by residents as an important health issue.

The report delineated health provider shortage areas to the west and north of Sacramento County, and while Rancho Cordova was not directly affected by these shortages, the report notes that it can be difficult for people throughout the county with moderate mental health issues to find help, except in a crisis situation, due to a lack of preventative mental health care.

Vulnerable Populations in Rancho Cordova

Mental illness does not discriminate, and people of all populations may be affected regardless of age, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. However, there are some populations in Rancho Cordova who are particularly vulnerable.

  • The Homeless Population: Homelessness is a major concern throughout Sacramento County. Federally mandated biennial single-night tallies showed a 30 percent increase in the homeless population from 2015 to 2017: 2,882 to 3,665, respectively. There is definitely a correlation between mental illness and homelessness, as 15 percent of the people in California’s public mental health system were homeless at least once in a one-year period and nationwide, 20 to 25 percent of the homeless population suffers from severe mental illness of some form. However, it would be a mistake to assume that mental illness causes homelessness. In many instances, the reverse may be true; becoming homeless may either cause mental illness or exacerbate an existing condition.
  • Veterans: Approximately 8 percent of the population of Rancho Cordova have served in the military, which is more than 1.5 times the rate in California (5.2 percent). Veterans in Rancho Cordova are at high risk for mental health disorders, such as PTSD, as well as homelessness.

  • Youth: The percentage of children ages 13-18 who currently have or may develop a serious mental illness is 20 percent. Additionally, abuse of drugs such as alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, pain medications, and tobacco by youth in Sacramento County is of significant concern.
  • Women and People of Color: Along with the homeless population, these groups face specific challenges when they have severe mental health issues such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
