Mental Health Outlook and Care Options in Santa Clara, California

Located in west central California, Santa Clara is the ninth most populous city in the San Francisco Bay Area. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates its 2017 population at 127,134 residents, a 9.1% increase over the 2010 census counts. The city is located 45 miles southeast of San Francisco in the County of Santa Clara, also known as “Silicon Valley”. The area is home to several high profile tech companies.

One of the wealthiest cities in the country, Santa Clara has a median household income of $102,533, almost twice the median for California and the United States. The city also has a lower poverty rate than the state and the country with only 8.2% of its population living below the poverty line. The majority of Santa Clara residents also have access to health care with only 7.2% of its under 65 years of age population having no health insurance coverage.

Mental Health Concerns in the Santa Clara Community

Even though Santa Clara is one of the most affluent communities in the nation, behavioral health remains a top concern. According to the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, adult residents experienced on average 4.19 days of stress, anxiety or worry in the past month and 9% reported experiencing frequent mental distress, which is defined as 14 or more mentally unhealthy days in the past 30 days. Poor mental health is a term that refers to conditions such as depression, stress and anxiety and does not include serious mental disorders. As a matter of fact, 14% of Santa Clara’s adult population has been diagnosed with depression in their lifetime.

The Health Department also reports that 28% of Santa Clara’s middle and high school students felt so sad or hopeless that they abandoned their usual activities for 2 or more weeks in the past year. Additionally, 17% of high school students had serious thoughts of suicide in the past 12 months. According to the department’s Epi-Aid investigation of youth suicide, there were 5.4 suicide deaths per 100,000 in the age group of 10 to 24 year olds with the highest percentage occurring among males and 20 to 24 year olds.

Substance abuse among all ages also remains a concern in Santa Clara County. According to the Community Health Needs Assessment, 14% of adults and 11% of young people in the county self reported binge drinking. Almost one third of high school students reported marijuana use, 7% reported using cocaine, and 11% said they have used other substances such as ecstasy and prescription pain medication.

These statistics indicate that while wealth may allow individuals to access health care easier than those with low income, it does not necessarily prevent the occurrence of mental and behavioral health problems such as depression, stress and drug use.
