Overview of Mental Health Resources in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Winston-Salem is the 5th most populous city in North Carolina with a recorded population of 245,549 as of 2018. The county seat of Forsythe County, Winston-Salem has most significantly played a role in the U.S. textiles and tobacco industries. While those industries still exist, they are not as large as they once used to be, and this has caused an upheaval in the identity of the city. Winston-Salem has increasingly become one of the leading areas in the country for nanotechnology, biotechnology, and other scientific industries.

The city is also changing in other ways as well. An ongoing problem the Winston-Salem area continues to deal with are the effects of substance abuse. Between 2005 and 2015 Forsyth county experienced one of the largest increases in opioid-related deaths among other comparable urban areas in the country. Substance abuse can often go together with mental health troubles- with people self-medicating rather than seeking alternative therapies.  This has been a significant enough issue that the community has identified mental health as one of the priority health issues to be addressed in their public health initiative. It is clear that vast improvements need to be made to the mental health services available for residents of the Winston-Salem area.

  • What type of symptoms and emotions are you experiencing?
  • What do you want to gain from going to therapy or working with a mental health professional?
  • Are you more comfortable speaking with a male or a female about your personal issues?
  • What time and monetary resources do you have to devote to the process?
  • Would you be better served by working with a professional that specializes in the behaviors you are wanting to address? (For example, someone who has extensive professional experience in working with overeaters, etc.)
