Seattle Mental Health Statistics

Seattle is home to over 730,000 residents. Common mental health issues among Seattle residents include anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues. Domestic violence may be another common cause of mental health issues in Seattle. 

According to the King County Community Health Needs Assessment for 2018/2019, 4% of King County adults reported experiencing serious psychological distress within the past 30 days between 2011 and 2015. And according to a 2015 report, over 20% of King County residents were diagnosed with depression at some point in their lives. Those with low incomes were found to be 3.5 to 7% more likely to experience distress, and those with LGBTQIA+ identities were two times as likely to experience distress compared to those who were heterosexual.

In 2013 alone, more than 1,000 cases of domestic violence were filed. King county experiences higher rates of deaths due to domestic violence than many other counties in Washington state, at 228 fatalities in the past 10 years.

Deaths related to drug overdose have been on the rise in Seattle. Heroin, prescription opioids, and methamphetamine contributed to over 300 deaths in 2016. One survey reported that while 78% of those addicted to injectable drugs were interested in seeking treatment, only 28% were doing so. Meanwhile, the use of cigarettes is on the decline, although low-income people are more likely to smoke.

There is still much to be done to improve the mental health and well-being of all Seattle residents, but even now, many licensed and compassionate mental health professionals in Seattle are working hard to support the mental health of anyone who needs help.
