Overview of Mental Health Resources in Tallahassee, Florida

Tallahassee in Leon County is the capital of Florida.  It is the home of the Florida State Capitol, Supreme Court of Florida, Florida Governor’s Mansion, and almost 30 state agency headquarters.  The city is known for its great number of law firms, lobbying establishments, trade associations, and professional associations, including the Florida Bar and Florida Chamber of Commerce.  It is also the headquarters to the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory as the city is a regional center for scientific research.  The population was 191,049 in 2017 according to the U.S. Bureau, making it the 7th-largest city in Florida.  It is the largest city in the Panhandle region.  It is the key center for trade and agriculture in the Big Bend and Southwest Georgia regions.  2015 was the second year that the city was awarded the All-American City Award by the National Civic League. For the period of 2009 to 2013 and according to the U.S. Census, the estimated median household income was $39,524. The number of people living below the poverty level was estimated at 30.2%.  The top employers of the area are the State of Florida and Florida State University.  Tallahassee is home to many diverse entertainment venues.  Railroad Square Art Park is their arts, culture, and entertainment district.  It displays locally owned shops, studios, and an alternative art scene.

Tallahassee has an area of 98.2 square miles (254.3 km2).  The city has a humid subtropical climate.  There are long summers and short, mild winters.  Summer highs are hotter in Tallahassee than in the rest of the Florida peninsula.  The city has been detrimentally impacted by hurricanes.  In 1985, Hurricane Kate and, in 2016, Hurricane Hermine have struck Tallahassee directly.   Category 4 Hurricane Michael swept through in early October, 2018.  This record-breaking storm left the entire grid of 117,000 customers without power for days.  There was extensive rain and wind damage.

City Concerns

The rate of suicide in Florida increased 10.6 percent from 1999 to 2016.  The Mental Health Council of the Big Bend announced on March 13, 2018 that it is joining together with more than 20 local mental health providers to address the current issues.  They have seen an 8 percent increase in the Baker / Marchman Acts (an involuntary commitment to hospitalization) since the Parkland shootings.  Leon County residents reported a perceived stress score of 15.3 out of 20 in the Council’s self-reported stress ratings.  This is higher than the 13.2 national mean.  The mental health providers and organizations do not match the prevalence of mental illness in this community and do not reach all of those who are in need of services.  Another note of concern in the city is the increase in prescription drug use and misuse in addition to the resulting turn to heroin when the prescriptions run out.  Major health organizations in Tallahassee filed a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical companies on April 4, 2018 and this legal pursuit is still on-going.  The damage by the recent assault by Hurricane Michael has left much of the city without power for days, limited relief efforts due to downed trees on the roads, and lack of communication putting the community in many forms of crisis.

The rate of divorce in Florida in 2016 was 3.9%.  The U.S. rate was 6.9% in the same year, according to the National Vital Statistic Report.

There are approximately 124 psychologists, counselors, and licensed social workers in Tallahassee and an estimate of 24 treatment centers.   There are approximately 77 psychiatrists in the city.
