A suburb of metropolitan Salt Lake City, an estimated 59,992 people reside within the Taylorsville, Utah, city limits. Taylorsville residents enjoy the breathtaking landscape that Utah has to offer including exquisite mountain, lake and desert views. Deep roots in Native American history and Mormon culture enrich the area.

Despite the magnificent scenery and economic upswing, many Taylorsville residents suffer from mild to severe mental health issues. Prevalent everywhere across the United States, over 44 million people experience some form of mental illness. Some difficulties are biological in nature and respond to combined therapeutic support and medication, such as bipolar disorder, clinical depression or schizophrenia.

Fortunately, regardless of the reason, counseling can help.

With a prevalence rate of 22.27 percent, the state of Utah is second highest in the nation for adult mental illness. Alarmingly, it ranks highest in the nation for adults with serious thoughts of suicide with a rate of 5.62 percent compared to the national average of 4.04 percent. In 2018, approximately 620 people in Utah succumbed to these dark thoughts and committed suicide. This is the equivalent of 21.79 per 100,000 people, and places Utah as the fifth highest state for death by one’s own hand. This is a devastating national epidemic that can be prevented. It is critical to seek immediate professional support when feelings of hopelessness, detachment or suicidal ideation persist.

However, the city rests on the Taylorsville-West Valley fault line indicating an increased risk of earthquakes in the area.
