About Vancouver

Vancouver is the seat of Clark County, Washington. It is situated on the Columbia River and has a land area of 52 square miles. The city is named after British explorer Captain George Vancouver. It was founded in 1825 and incorporated in 1857.

An estimated 185,000 people live in Vancouver. The ethnic composition of the population is 79% white, 12% Hispanic, 5% Asian, and 3% black. Over 10% of Vancouver residents are military veterans, and 14% of residents have a disability.

The median household income is $52,000. The city’s unemployment rate is roughly 5%. Around 95% of private sector businesses in Vancouver are considered small businesses (50 workers or less). The largest industries are health care, social assistance, and educational services.

Mental Health in Vancouver

The number of psychiatric beds in Clark County are not matching the community’s needs. Plans are in place to build a Crisis Triage Center to assist residents with mental health and addiction concerns. While the project has received $3 million in funding so far, this is less than a quarter of the required budget. 

Officials claim the crisis triage center could save the county money long-term. The Sheriff’s Office estimates that if nonviolent inmates with mental health concerns were diverted to a crisis center, the county could save $712,000 a year. PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center says a crisis center would save the hospital $1.4 million a year in emergency room costs.
