Los Angeles Mental Health Statistics

California is not immune to the large number of people in the U.S. who deal with mental illnesses every day. One out of every twenty-four people in the state has at least one serious mental illness. Depression has become a prevalent problem in the Los Angeles area, racking up higher rates of incidence than most other parts of the country. 

In L.A., 4.3% of the adult population has been diagnosed with a serious mental illness, and 7.8% of children in L.A. County also deal with one. Angelenos also have the highest rates of suicidal thoughts in the country

Complicating factors for mental illness statistics in the L.A. area is the fact that California accounts for about 53% of homeless people in the country, the majority of whom live on Skid Row. Unsheltered people have an inordinately high number of cases of mental illnesses. All of these facts point out the immense need for mental health treatment in Los Angeles for a variety of diagnoses.

How Is Mental Health Treated?

Mental illness requires treatment that can come from a variety of approaches, depending on which illness a person has and how extensive it is. Some conditions, such as depression and anxiety, can be brought under control and even overcome. Other conditions, such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, are lifelong conditions. However, proper treatment can help a person learn to manage their symptoms and live a meaningful life. 

The most common approach to treating mental illness is therapy. Individuals can benefit from one-on-one sessions with a trained therapist who will help them understand their illness and how best to treat it. Prescription medications offer an option for several types of mental illness. They can be prescribed by a physician or a psychiatrist. Some medications only need to be used on a temporary basis, while others prove most beneficial when used long-term. 

For many, residential programs offer a great way to receive a full assessment of a person’s mental health and begin treatment of it. Often the ability to reside in a comfortable setting away from the stress of their daily lives allows a person to hit the reset button. They can benefit from a much-needed break from people and events that may aggravate their mental health symptoms. 

Group therapy and support groups offer an eye-opening way for people to come together in a safe environment to discuss the challenge of living with a mental illness. They can bond with others who understand what their experience feels like and seek and give advice on how to manage mental illness so that they can live more productive and happier lives.

Mental Health And Addiction Often Co-exist

Approximately half of all people who suffer from mental illness also have an addiction to alcohol or drugs. Often one condition exacerbates the other, which can make it difficult for a person to reach out for help. An individual experiencing frustrating or frightening symptoms of a mental illness often reaches for alcohol and drugs to help temporarily reduce or eliminate the symptoms. Without realizing the risk, this can lead to an addiction. 

Someone who already has an addiction may find that their substance abuse escalates some of their mental health symptoms. For example, a person who has clinical depression may drink alcohol to excess in order to attempt to improve their mood. Alcohol is a depressant, and while it can sometimes offer temporary respite from painful emotions, it ultimately adds to the person’s depression.

Because of how common it is for people with a mental illness to also have a substance use disorder, many programs provide treatment for both conditions. Co-occurring conditions are part of many detox, residential, outpatient, and other treatment plans, making it an ideal way to address two serious situations under the supervision of one facility.

  • The multi-pronged approach; the counselors, individual therapy, nutrition, sympathetic/empathetic counselors of each group session shifted my brain paths. You are never finished there, even when you “graduate”, they hold alumni group sessions when you feel you need it. I have nothing but gratitude for their program.
