An Overview of Mental Health in West Allis, Wisconsin

A suburb of the Milwaukee metropolitan area, West Allis, Wisconsin, is home to 59,934 residents. Proximity to this prominent, Midwestern city allows the West Allis population to enjoy a multitude of nearby amenities such as local breweries, professional sporting events, performing arts and beaches of Lake Michigan. The bustling city of Chicago is less than 100 miles away, making it close enough for a day trip or weekend excursion.

In addition to neighboring amenities, inhabitants also benefit from the relatively low cost of living in comparison to other areas. Home ownership is rather affordable with a median house price of $141,200 compared to the $216,200 US and the $177,800 Wisconsin state median cost.

There are downfalls to living in this part of the country, however, such as severe winter weather. The people of West Allis also struggle with increased crime rates and decreased job prospects. These negative external influences have the potential to impact mental health and emotional well-being. Fortunately, there are resources available for those suffering from mental illness or simply contending with a rough patch in life.

The State of Mental Health in Wisconsin

The 18.51 percent rate of adult mental illness in Wisconsin is commensurate with the 18.07 percent national average, according to prevalence data collected by Wisconsin teenagers experience some form of depression at a slightly increased rate of 14.45 percent in comparison with the national rate of 12.63 percent. MHA reports that substance abuse for both adults (9.10 percent) and adolescents (5.16 percent) is higher than the respective national percentages of 7.93 and 4.61. Whether residents are experiencing mental health concerns or struggling with addiction, therapeutic intervention can help.

West Allis Climate

Typical of the region, West Allis has its share of harsh weather conditions. Over the course of the year, approximately 70 days include precipitation of some sort. In winter, the total snowfall accumulation of 46 inches is nearly double the 26-inch national average. Only half of the days (188) throughout the year are sunny compared to the US average of 205 days. Although many people living in the Midwest enjoy winter sports and outdoor activities, extreme cold temperatures may force some to remain indoors for extended periods of time. Lack of sunshine and isolation from others may negatively impact overall emotional well-being. For those feeling lonely or down, reaching out for counseling support helps to create a sense of connectedness and hopefulness.

Crime Statistics in West Allis, Wisconsin

In West Allis, 1 in 27 people fall victim to a crime on an annual basis. Property crimes, including burglary and theft, occur 44 percent more frequently than elsewhere in the nation and 88 percent more often than in other areas of the state. The prevalence of violent crimes such as murder, rape and robbery, is slightly lower than the US average and slightly higher than Wisconsin overall. Being victimized is a traumatic experience. It can lead to increased anxiety and decreased feelings of safety and control. Oftentimes, professional counseling services are needed to help people successfully cope with such a difficult experience.

Economic Influences in West Allis

Although the cost of living is lower than other parts of the country, so is the median household income. West Allis residents earn an average salary of $46,524 per year, compared to the Wisconsin average of $56,610 and the typical US income of $55,322. Although the frequency of people living at or below the poverty level and the unemployment rate are consistent with other parts of the country, the job prospects in West Allis are not keeping up with national trends. Recent job growth in the area is 0.77 percent, significantly less than the typical national rate of 1.59 percent. Money issues are a common stressor for both single people and married partners. Marriage counseling or individual therapy help people manage money and job-related stress and anxiety.
