Scottsdale is located in Maricopa County, Arizona.  The New York Times coined the city as “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” due to its active nightlife and abundance of hotel social activities.  The city’s population in 2015 was estimated to be 236,839 according to the U.S. Census Bureau and it is 31 miles long, 11.4 miles wide.  The climate is arid.  In 2016, the median household income was $76,543 and the poverty rate was 9.2%.  Scottsdale Health and Mayo Clinic are the two largest employers in Scottsdale.  Tourism and high-technology industries, such as Motorola Research, have helped Scottsdale become a prosperous city.

The divorce rate in 2016 in Arizona was 3.4% according to the National Vital Statistic Report compared the U.S. rate of 6.9% in the same year.

In May, 2018, Scottsdale’s police department teamed together with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mental Health America, and various other organizations throughout the U.S. to discuss support options and bringing mental health awareness to their community in efforts to fight stigma.  Scottsdale had a significant increase in mental health calls addressed to the police department, because people did not know who else to call.  The police organization felt that it was important to educate families on mental health symptoms, who to call for specific situations, and how to create a family plan if there is a crisis.  This is a very progressive program for any American city.  The state of Arizona, however, is the 2nd worst state in America in addressing mental health concerns, according to the nonprofit Mental Health America.  Due to mental health disorders, some people find themselves in the legal system rather than in treatment if they are not aware of their symptoms or disorders.  The state of Arizona had to raise their spending for the Department of Corrections in 2016 and lower their educational spending due to the increase of the mentally ill being incarcerated.  The lack of funding for mental health organizations can make it challenging to find help when you need it.

There are approximately 491 therapists, counselors, and licensed social workers, who service the mental health community, in Scottsdale.  There is an estimate of 85 treatment centers.  There are approximately 476 psychiatrists in Scottsdale and immediately surrounding the area.

How We Can Help

Calling for support is a powerful first step during a challenging time.  We gathered these resources to help make your decision easier for you to find the right fit in your steps to wellness.  A helpful effort is listing all of your symptoms and concerns, so you can ensure that they are remembered during that first discussion.  You can help narrow down your choices by answering the following questions as well:

Do you have a preference on your therapist’s training, experience, and / or gender?

Are you having relationship challenges?  Would this person be willing to attend therapy together?

Do you think that you have a dual diagnosis (mental health issues in addition to alcohol/ substance self-medicating issues)?

How long have you been experiencing these issues?  Is this the first time or is it reoccurring?

Many therapists offer a complimentary assessment and/ or an initial conversation to be sure that you are a suitable match.

Crisis Support

Scottsdale Police Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) responds to mental health calls and calls for suicidal ideation / behavior.  The CIT is a community endeavor in joining together law enforcement, mental health providers, and hospital emergency centers to assist individuals and their families through a crisis.

Crisis Response Network provides immediate and confidential help for someone in crisis.  They offer a 24 hour a day / 7 days a week hotline and mobile services.

Nonprofit Mental Health Providers

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health serves children, adolescents, and families in the need of mental health counseling.  Outpatient counseling services are offered in the office, at school, and / or in the home.

Banner Health offers outpatient behavioral health services for a variety of mental health conditions.

Community Bridges combines medical and behavioral interventions to treat psychiatric and substance abuse needs.  They offer individual, group, and family therapy.  They are one of the largest statewide providers offering fully integrated medical and behavioral health care.

The New Foundation offers mental health treatment and substance abuse programs for individuals ages 11 -17.

Banner Health provides inpatient and outpatient mental health services for adults and teens.

Aurora Behavioral Health System provides inpatient services for individuals 18 years and older for psychiatric, emotional, and substance problems.
