The story of Charlotte began in 1755 when Thomas Polk started a settlement at the confluence of two Native American trade routes. The settlement grew in size and was officially called Charlotte-town in 1768. The community was named after the wife of the British King George III. Although originally the town's leaders were anxious to garner support from Great Britain, they eventually went the way of the rest of America by pursuing independence. In 1770, the town's future development was planned by a group of surveyors. The major areas and roads they designated have remained important parts of Charlotte's urban landscape. Charlotte was an influential locale for several denominations of Christianity including: Baptists, Lutherans, Catholics and others. This has earned Charlotte the nickname, "the City of Churches".1

Mental Health in Charlotte

Citizens of Charlotte, regardless of their age, face a wide variety of mental health issues. Mental disorders are the leading cause of disability for people in Charlotte between the ages of 15-44. Over one-fourth of teenagers in Charlotte report feeling sad or hopeless. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia in people over the age of 65, and is the 4th leading cause of death of Mecklenburg County's elderly residents.2 With many barriers to treatment, including stigma and unavailability of services, some Charlotte residents try to live with mental illness without getting the proper care they need.

Poor mental health can often be a barrier to gainful employment. Goodwill Industries offers a variety of programs to those in need of employment assistance. Those without a job due to mental or physical disability, social disadvantage, or homelessness can participate in job training workshops in order to gain employment skills. Goodwill's job resource center provides many leads for area jobs. On-the-job training programs are also available in a number of vocations. Services for youth who have little or no work experiences are available as well. For additional details, contact Goodwill at 704-372-3434.3

Current Education

The Department of Counseling at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte offers both master's and doctoral programs in counseling. Graduates of these programs have the skills and knowledge to offer compassionate, proactive and effective therapeutic treatments to people suffering from an array of mental illnesses and addictions. The program focuses specifically on the development of counselors who respect the dignity and culture of others. More information about the program is available by calling 704-687-8622.4
