An Overview of Mental Health in Sacramento, California

Sacramento is the sixth largest city in the state of California with an estimated population of 501,334 in 2018. As the state capital, Sacramento is the political center of California which includes the legislature, Governor, and Supreme Court. The diversity of the Sacramento metro area’s nearly 2.5 million residents has made it a culturally and economically important region of the state.

The effects of the 2008 global financial crisis, in which Sacramento was hit very hard, is still felt in the city and surrounding areas. Sacramento has been experiencing an economic recovery, but it is not fully back to pre-financial crisis levels and the residents are struggling to find jobs of the same quality and pay as they previously had. These economic concerns can have a significant impact on the mental health of residents.

Limited Resources

Few areas of the country were hit as hard by the latest recession as was Sacramento. Job losses and the real estate bubble took hold of the city and its residents have needed support to improve conditions. Many residents are essentially starting their careers over and the lack of full-time work is a problem. This can also lead to mental health issues as people deal with outside pressures of paying bills and staving off homelessness.

The state of California has been pinpointed for having a shortage of mental health professionals and this is concerning, especially for regions where residents are especially prone to dealing with such issues. The unfortunate part is that this disparity is expected to widen in the future. Sacramento County, in particular, is an area with very high rates of emergency room visits and hospitalizations for mental health and substance abuse issues. This is likely due, in part, to the lack of other facilities that people with these issues can go to.

With Sacramento being the capital of California, it plays an important role in addressing this concerning trend in the limited mental health resources. The ability to connect with licensed therapists and mental health professionals is important for residents to ensure a stronger future for the city.

Whether you are suffering from financial stress, family problems, depression, or another condition that is having a negative impact on your ability to live a full life, you may find it helpful to reach out for assistance. We can help you search for therapists and mental health professionals in the Sacramento area. The professionals from our directory can work around your schedule.

It might take some time to recognize that you require the help of a professional, but when you are ready to take the next step and find a therapist in Sacramento, we can help make the search process as easy as possible.

Where to Start Your Search

At the beginning of your search, it is a good idea to spend a few moments taking stock of your reasons for seeking treatment and what type of environment might be best-suited to your communication style. After all, the better the process is tailored to your own specific needs, the more you will be able to get out of it. Some of the questions that you can start with are:

  • What are you hoping to gain from going through the therapeutic process?
  • How long are you able to dedicate to meeting with a professional?
  • Does it matter to you whether the therapist is a man or a woman?
  • Are you suffering from an issue that is best addressed by a specialist in that area? (For example, if you are struggling with an eating disorder)

These questions can be a good starting point from where you can narrow down your search for the right fit for you. Being able to communicate your needs and requirements is an important part of ensuring that the treatment that you receive is effective.

Health Insurance Coverage

If you have health insurance, it is a good idea to give your provider a call and find out what if any treatments they may cover under mental health services. If your plan includes these services, you may be required to choose a therapist that is in their network of professionals.
