Mental Health Resources in Sandy Springs, Georgia

There are unique challenges for mental health care in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Statewide estimates say that 2.3 million Georgians live with some form of mental illness. Yet Georgia ranks 47th in the country for mental health resources. Meanwhile, the state has a significant opioid problem. It is in the top 11 states in the country for prescription opioid deaths. Sandy Springs also has a significant drug problem. Almost 15 of people in the greater Sandy Springs area say they use illicit drugs.

These statistics make it clear that Sandy Springs needs better outreach for mental health care resources. There are many area resources to help people get the health care they need. However, some people might not know how to go about getting treatment.

Almost 6% of adults in the Sandy Springs area say that they have had a depressive episode in the past year. Meanwhile, tobacco and alcohol use showed similar rates in the rest of the country. Almost 22% of inhabitants above the age of 12 said they used cigarettes in the last month. Almost 21% said they drank alcohol to excess in a month-long period.

It is relevant to look at these statistics when looking at mental health overviews in an area. Substance use is a significant factor in mental health disorders. Estimates say 37% of those who misuse alcohol and 53% of drug users have a mental disorder. Similarly, those who have existing mental conditions are more likely to abuse substances. This may be due to a desire to self-medicate or for other reasons.

Effects of Education, Divorce, Poverty, and Other Contributing Factors

The poverty rate in Sandy Springs is 11.8%. This is much higher than the national average. People living in poverty are both more likely to have mental health issues and less likely to seek treatment.

Divorce rates are not available for the state of Georgia. The state stopped reporting them in 2003. However, estimates claim that Georgia has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. More Georgians also marry than the U.S. average. Divorce rates in the American South are 10.2% for men and 11.1% for women. It is reasonable to assume that Georgia roughly reflects these trends. Divorce is a stressful and painful life event. It gives rise to unique needs in mental health care, such as marital and family counseling.

Sandy Springs has a high education rate. About 60.7% of inhabitants hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. Education rates also factor into mental health because educated people are more likely to seek care.
