The historic city of Stockton, California is known by many for its beautiful location along the San Joaquin River. This city is the 13th largest in California and one of the 75 top largest cities in the United States.

However, its thriving downtown area also makes it a popular place for everyone from growing families to young professionals.

Despite its highly diverse population, much like the rest of California, Stockton has high divorce rates. In fact, while the national divorce rate hovers around 50%, it is estimated that California divorce rates can be even higher—with as many as 60% of all California marriages culminating in divorce.

However, while these numbers can seem alarming, this is actually a good thing as diagnosis depression is the first step to getting treatment and this means more and more people in the US are seeking treatment for this condition.
