Charlotte is the county seat of Mecklenburg County and is home to 775,202 residents1. Situated between the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the city enjoys a relatively moderate climate, making it a favorite locale for year-round residents and retirees. Among the many historical and cultural attractions located here, the Nascar Hall of Fame is one of the most well-known. Aside from its entertainment value, the city also offers a variety of secondary education options. University City is located at the edge of the city and boasts the main campus of the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. The city itself has other university campuses, such as Wake Forest University, Duke University, and North Carolina Central University.

 

Mental Health Statistics
According to a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration survey for 2002–2004, 10.1% of adult residents in western North Carolina, including Mecklenburg County, experienced severe psychological distress in the previous year. Of all area residents, 8.8% had used illicit drugs within a 30-day period between 2002 and 2004, 4.87% used pain relievers for nonmedical purposes, and nearly 2% reported having a substance abuse problem2. Homicide was the leading cause of death in 2011 for residents between the ages of 15 and 24. The same year, 19% of high school students reported having been bullied on school property, and 15% claimed to have attempted suicide one or more times within the year3.

 

The North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services reported that 11,629 children and 12,794 adults were served by MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare programs in the second quarter of 2012. Of all area residents receiving care from MeckLINK, 4% were admitted for short-term, psychiatric inpatient care4.

 

Mecklenburg LINKS Clients to Care
MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare5 provides a comprehensive network of care for all area residents in need of mental health services so that they can achieve individual competence and psychological well-being. MeckLINK works with the community to empower individuals, families, and neighborhoods impacted by substance addiction, mental illness, or developmental challenges. MeckLINK provides services ranging from crisis and emergency care to individual counseling for those dealing with mental health problems. MeckLINK contracts with over 300 area providers to ensure clients’ needs are being met.

 

The Mecklenburg Health Department has developed programs aimed at young adult and adolescent males. Geared toward men between the ages of 13 and 28, the Male Involvement Program is an educational program delivered in 14 sessions that teaches young men how to improve their relationships, lives, communication, and goal-setting skills. The Males Place is designed to help younger men, between 10 and 24. It empowers young men by providing mentoring and support from middle school through high school and beyond. Issues that are addressed include anger management, teen pregnancy, fathering skills, male physical and mental health, and others. Special focus is given to teens through participation in opportunities like the Role Model All-Star Classic Contest, designed to inspire and motivate young men to achieve independence and become successful citizens. These programs offered through the county are just a few of the culturally diverse and comprehensive services that Mecklenburg area residents can take advantage of at no cost6.
