An Overview of Mental Health in Brookhaven, Georgia

Brookhaven, Georgia is a city that has grown over nine percent between 2010-2018. It is a relatively new area; however, it is now the largest city in Dekalb County. It includes a variety of recreational parks, shopping areas and other points of interest that draw in people from all over the state. While the average weather temperatures are pleasant, the city’s pollution rates are some of the highest in that area, at 294 percent worse than the rest of the nation. Other issues, such as a lack of insurance and transportation issues, may prevent individuals in Brookhaven from getting attention for mental problems that include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Finding a therapist may help these individuals, who may not be aware of services in the area.

Mental Health Concerns in Brookhaven

Nearly 20 percent of citizens in Brookhaven live without health insurance, despite coverage being available through some of the area’s jobs, which include construction, wholesale and education sectors. Unemployment rates are low; however, the poverty rate is slightly higher than the rest of the nation. Other conditions that could trigger mental health problems in this area include:

  • A higher rate of pay for men when compared to women
  • Physical disabilities
  • A low doctor-to-patient ratio for mental health issues
  • An imbalance of racial diversity in the population of the city

It may be that some Brookhaven residents who suffer from mental illness do not have the means to travel to a clinic or therapist, and those who are veterans may not be aware that symptoms such as depression, anxiety or who have certain triggers point to any kind of serious problems. Others may be too embarrassed to seek help or are unsure if they need assistance.

Other Mental Health Factors in Brookhaven

There is a relatively low percentage of people over the age of 65 in Brookhaven, at just over nine percent. However, some of these senior citizens may be living in poverty and cannot afford mental health care. Advancing age, loneliness and degenerative diseases may all contribute to the development of depression.

The high cost of living in Brookhaven may also contribute to mental health issues among its citizens. The cost of homes, rent, utilities and transportation are higher than the rest of the nation, with rent and mortgages being some of the most costly. This can lead to financial stress and anxiety when paying these bills becomes an issue. In addition, some citizens may chalk these feelings up to life’s daily stressors and not recognize that they need help until depression and anxiety begins to affect their jobs, marriages and personal lives.

Immediate Mental Health Resources in Brookhaven

Citizens in Brookhaven who are having serious struggles with their mental health can reach out and find immediate help, especially if they feel they may harm themselves. Assistance may be no more than a phone call or a keyboard stroke away:

Internet resources may be helpful for those who do not feel comfortable speaking to someone over the phone. Many chat sites are available nationwide and are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Many of the websites can be accessed via computer, mobile phone or tablet, making it easier than ever to find help for poor mental health, no matter where individuals are.

Finding a Therapist in Brookhaven

In many cases, the mental health of those suffering from depression and other problems usually cannot improve unless they enter therapy and discover the root of the issue. Local clinics in the city and in nearby Atlanta are available for anyone who wants to find a path to better mental health:

  • Georgia Behavioral Health Professionals of Brookhaven 678-820-7830
  • Skyland Trail 866-528-9593
  • Dorothy C. Faqua Center 404-315-8333
