I am honored to have the opportunity to meet you and explore areas of the heart, mind, and soul with you. I have fallen in love with studying "love" since a young age. It occurred to me that life gives us many paradoxes/contradictions such as: "Go through pain in order to heal". Since my awareness opened up to the vast internal world of the human mind, I strive to find the answer. In the combination... Read More

An Overview of Mental Health in Tracy, California

Tracy, California, a city of 90,889 in the San Joaquin Valley, is a pleasant little town about halfway between San Francisco and Sacramento. It has a diverse population and is a little more affordable than the San Francisco Bay area. While there may not be much to do in the town itself, residents are a mere two hours from some of the best nature that the US has to offer including the Pacific Coast, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and the Redwood forests.

Mental Health in Tracy

For many Californians, mental health is one of main chronic illnesses that affects their lives. While many residents in Tracy consider it to be a nice place to live, there are some specific characteristics about the town that may influence mental health in the area.

  • Crime: San Joaquin County has one of the highest rates of crime in California. Victims of crime and those who are afraid of becoming victims could benefit from speaking with a therapist.
  • Obesity: Obesity is one of the top health concerns in Tracy per a recent community health needs assessment (CHNA). Obesity may lead to a range of both mental and physical health challenges.
  • Long Commutes: Some residents make the 120+ mile roundtrip commute to San Francisco or Sacramento every day from Tracy. These long commutes can add to stress levels.
  • Substance Abuse and Addiction: The CHNA also listed substance abuse as a top health concern, particularly because the city lacks adequate treatment facilities. Mental health service could help both the addicts and their family and friends cope with the devastating effects of addiction.
  • Difficulty that Foreign-Born Residents Face in US: The 1% of residents in Tracy who were born abroad may find they need additional support to adapt to life in the US. The city’s largest immigrant groups include individuals from Mexico, India and the Philippines. As compared to other cities in the US, Tracy also has a high percentage of residents from Afghanistan.

Mental Health Resources in Tracy

California ranks fairly low on lists ranking the states’ access to mental health services. According to the California Health Resources and Services Administration, the current shortage of mental health resources is projected to get worse. By 2025, the state could lack nearly 2,000 psychiatrists. This means that the current trend of Californians not receiving the help they need could continue.

No matter what you’re facing, there are a range of counselors in the Tracy area who can help you out. The licensed family and marriage therapists, licensed clinical social workers and licensed professional clinical counselors who are available have experience in a variety of modalities as listed below.

  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Family systems
  • Mindfulness
  • Solution focused

These therapists can help you with stress, grief, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, intimacy-related issues, anger managements, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, complex trauma and abuse, LGBTQ issues, spirituality, identity formation, and career difficulties. They also have experience with an array of mental illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorder.

The Challenge of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Tracy

Unfortunately, many residents in Tracy may find it challenging to access mental health services. A few of the main reasons for this difficulty are listed below.

  • Lack of care providers: The state-wide shortage in mental health services may also affect Tracy.
  • Language barriers: The 41% of Tracy residents who speak a language besides English at home may find it difficult to find a therapist who can communicate in their mother tongue. Spanish is the most common second language, and many health care providers are providing services in Spanish nowadays. However, those residents speaking an Indic language or Persian may have a harder time.
  • Cost: The 2% of residents without health insurance and the 8.4% living in poverty may find that mental health services are prohibitively expensive.

For those in Tracy facing financial difficulties, community organizations and non-profits may be able to help. To help with language barriers, therapists may be able to help arrange translation services.
