Counseling Laguna Woods

Although the population of children in Laguna Woods may be small compared to other cities-- with fewer than 100 children under 18---the city remembers that there is a bit of kid in all of us. There is a beautiful 236-acre park with a lake that is stocked every winter with four kinds of fish. Dogs aren't left out, either. There is a dog park in Laguna Woods where, seven days a week, owners can take their puppy-pals and let them off their leashes. The leaders of Laguna Woods, CA are concentrating this year on steering the community toward greener, more family-friendly development projects. The city voted to amend the zoning laws in order to establish affordable housing. Since most of the housing in Laguna Woods is currently assisted living for seniors, the affordable housing will be a real boost for families.1

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Laguna Woods

Laguna Woods is a very small city, but has a variety of household types, from married couples, single unmarried parents, and cohabitating partners. Approximately 85% of the population is married while 15% remains single.2 However, the number of married households is sure to decline, given that the estimated divorce rate in America stands at over 40 percent. With such a statistic, the situation in Laguna Woods is not likely different.

In order to address the stigma of mental illness, the National Alliance on Mental Illness engages in school outreach programs throughout Orange County. Interactive presentations engage students in learning about the biological causes of mental illness and seek to help kids understand why and how mental illness occurs. Presentations are delivered by trained volunteers who have a background in the mental health field.3 Additionally, Western Youth Services provides a number of outreach programs that help prevent the onset of mental health conditions. Their programs reduce risk factors associated with behavioral health issues and increase positive factors that help keep mental illness at bay. More information about these programs is available by calling the National Alliance on Mental Illness at 714-544-8488, extension 108 or Western Youth Services at 714-517-7107.4
