From professional sporting events at the local StubHub Center to some of the best beaches within a short drive, there is always something exciting to do in Carson, California.

Regardless of the beautiful weather and boundless activities, inhabitants of Carson are not immune from mental health struggles. Independent of location, tens of millions of Americans suffer from some form of mental illness.

Two contributing factors include the price of housing and transportation, which includes commuting, gasoline and insurance. The median home cost in Carson is $528,400 compared to the national average of $216,200.

Even though the median household income of $71,420 is higher than the national median of $53,482, the cost of living compiled with high taxes can cause financial strain. Money issues are a common root of personal stress and may impact quality of relationships when there is conflict about monetary matters within the family.

Single family households comprise 16.34% of the overall family households.

Depending on family structure, different challenges emerge. Married and separated couples benefit from marriage counseling to strengthen their relationship and avoid becoming another notch in the divorce statistic.

Mental Health Resources in California

Compared to other states, California falls right in the middle of the pack in terms of overall mental illness prevalence and access to care.

Per 100,000 people, there are 56 licensed clinical social workers, 80 marriage and family therapists, 46 psychologists, and 15 psychiatrists.

Unfortunately despite the many resources, not all adults seek or receive needed counseling services. In California, 63% of adults with mental illness do not obtain therapeutic intervention. This may be due to the cost associated with care or lack of information on how to find appropriate services.
