Located in the desert of Arizona, Phoenix is a mecca for sporting events, Native American history, and culture. This state capital is located in Maricopa County and has 1,488,750 full-time residents1. Each year, millions more visit the city to attend various bowls and games. The Phoenix Coyotes, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Phoenix Suns, and the Arizona Cardinals all call Phoenix home. Superbowl XLII was held at the University of Phoenix, and NASCAR holds two annual events at the Phoenix International Raceway. Each year, college sports fans flock to the city to watch the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Students can choose from one of many excellent schools of higher education in the area, including Arizona State University, the University of Phoenix, and the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

 

Mental Health Statistics
Based on a community survey conducted by the City of Phoenix Human Services Department, 10% of residents live with anxiety, bipolar, or depression. Rates of drug use were 3.5% for marijuana and 4.5% for prescription pain pills used for nonmedical purposes2. The same survey found that 8% of residents use mental health services, 2% use shelters for victims of domestic violence and another 2% use substance abuse treatment services3. Overall, more than 104,000 Maricopa County residents were enrolled in or accessed services from Arizona’s Behavioral Public Health Department in 20125. In addition, incidents of child abuse and neglect rose by 16.3% between 2008 and 2012. In 2012, there were in excess of 11,000 separate reports of child abuse or neglect in Phoenix4.

 

Mental Health Programs
Maricopa County and the City of Phoenix operate in conjunction with Arizona’s Behavioral Public Health System to offer extensive services on the county and state level. On the city level, residents can take advantage of programs that address children’s needs, including Head Start. This nationally based program involves parents in the healthcare process by teaching parenting skills and educating them on developmental and behavioral health. Children at risk are assigned a case manager to ensure that their overall health needs are being safely and securely met in and outside of the home.

 

The city’s Crime Victim Services Department has a special Family Advocacy Division designed to help victims of crime. Emotional damage can be just one consequence of a crime and survivors are offered a range of services to deal with the emotional, physical, and even financial damage of violent crime. Therapy, support groups, and special medical attention for sexual crimes and case management are just some of the resources available to victims of violent crimes.

 

Residents can also take advantage of crisis and senior services. The city devotes its attention to those in crisis situations that include homelessness, job-loss, utility shut-off, or food insecurity. Through elder services, housing assistance, and other avenues of aid, the city is able to help residents overcome temporary setbacks that can cause emotional challenges and provide them the resources they need to get back on their feet6.
