Located in Los Angeles County, Beverly Hills is renowned for fashion and fame. Hotels represent the largest employers in this city suburb with a modest population of just over 34,000. Rodeo Drive is the most popular destination for tourists, and those seeking fortune and fame flock to this trendy area from all reaches of the world.

 

Despite its small population, Beverly Hills provides extensive, in-depth services to its community members. The city falls under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (DMH), which is the largest mental health organization in the United States. The DMH has over 175 sites dedicated to providing mental health services to all of Los Angeles County. The department contracts with more than a thousand agencies and medical professionals, including marriage and family counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and trained caregivers to provide area residents1 with specialized care.

 

Mental Health Statistics
Because Beverly Hills represents only a small portion of the larger metropolitan area and Los Angeles County, statistics for citizens of the city are integrated into overall data compiled for the region. According to the DMH, 7.8% of all young people had a serious emotional disturbance and 6.4% of adults in the greater Los Angeles area had a serious mental illness in the year 20002.

 

Substance abuse is a widespread problem throughout the region, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association reported that over 15.4% of adults and young adults used illicit drugs between the years of 2005 and 2010; this rate includes marijuana use (11%) and non-medical prescription drug use (4.4%). However, less than 6% of adults in the metropolitan area experienced a major depressive episode3 during that same time. In addition to outpatient and outreach programs, the county also provides intense inpatient treatment for mental health issues. During the years 2008 and 2009, over 45,000 Los Angeles County residents were admitted to a psychiatric or medical facility for 72-hour holds and psychological evaluations4.

 

Beverly Hills Health and Safety Commission
Although small in population, Beverly Hills has a large investment in the mental health and overall well-being of its citizens. Their Health and Safety Commission is comprised of seven members appointed by the city council5, and the commission strives to promote health and safety communication and to reduce safety risks. Through the commission, residents can discuss concerns related to well-being and health and actively participate in the implementation and delivery of disaster preparedness programs. Environmental, medical, psychological, and economic consequences of disasters can be minimized when all elected officials, volunteer organizations, services, and residents of the city work together for the greater good of their city. All residents of Beverly Hills are encouraged to take advantage of the healthcare services available and the many opportunities to help.
