Overview of Mental Health Resources in Springfield, Missouri

Located in the Ozarks region of southwest Missouri, Springfield is the seat of Greene County and has a population of approximately 167,376 making it the third-largest city in the state. Known for being the birthplace of Route 66, the city’s thriving economy is driven by health care, manufacturing, and retail. Springfield’s revitalization efforts related to its downtown district have attracted more young people to the area who are looking for a good quality of life and good jobs. While residents are the beneficiaries of improvements to the city they are still susceptible to the growing trend of mental health issues and the consequences of letting those problems go untreated. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Southwest Missouri, suicide rates in Greene County were up 56% from last year.

A Troubling Trend

Establishing why there is such a significant increase in the rates of suicide in the area is difficult. But one thing that is certain is that it is important that people struggling with mental illness have access to care. Care that only happens when someone is already in a compromised or emergency situation is not good enough. Many times, people do not receive treatment for such problems until they are sent to an emergency room or become a part of the criminal justice system.

As a major city in the state of Missouri, Springfield has an important role in paving the way for better access to care and planning for residents who are dealing with mental illness or substance abuse.

If you find yourself struggling in your everyday life with depression, excessive stress, anxiety, or substance abuse it may be time to reach out for help. Any number of factors can adversely affect your quality of life, but know that there are people who can help you get though these tough times. When you are ready to seek out the services of a Springfield mental health professional or therapist we want to help connect you with right person who can work around your schedule.

Deciding you need help is not an easy process but when you are ready and open to going down the path of wellness we want to make your search for the right therapist in the Springfield area as easy as possible.

Where to Start

Before you start your search for a professional to work with, we encourage you to first think about your situation and what your unique needs are. It is worthwhile to spend a little time thinking about what you hope to get out of the process and the type of treatment or care that you personally may need. If you can get some clarity about the challenges you face and your unique experience you’ll be better able to explain to someone else. If you need some ideas to get started, here are a few questions you can ask yourself:

  • What issues are you currently dealing with and have you been diagnosed before?
  • How is your life being adversely affected?
  • What are you currently doing to cope with setbacks that you experience?
  • What do you hope to get out of the therapeutic process?
  • Do you feel more comfortable talking to a man or a woman about your personal issues?
  • How long are you willing to commit to the process of therapy?
  • Do you suffer from a condition that may be better addressed by a specialist, such as an eating disorder or an issue with substance abuse?

By answering these questions you’ll be better able to communicate your own needs, evaluate the array of services available to you, and see which might be the best fit for your needs. Finding a mental health professional that fits your criteria is an excellent step in getting effective treatment.

Does Your Medical Insurance Cover Mental Health Services?

The cost of therapy is often a deciding factor for people when it comes to what kind of services they will have access to. We suggest getting in touch with your health insurance company to find out if they cover any or all services that you may need. Often, they will have a list of professionals within their network that you can go to and it will lessen the out-of-pocket cost to you significantly.
