Mental Health in Phoenix

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, well over 200,000 Arizona residents live with a mental illness. As a result, the public mental health system is overburdened and struggles to serve all residents who need mental health counseling. In addition, nearly 17 percent of Arizona residents are on Medicaid and over 1.2 million are uninsured, which further limits access to mental health services for many people who require assistance. 2

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) Division of Behavioral Health Services provides valuable information for people regarding mental health issues that impact Phoenix residents. ADHS seeks to educate Arizonans about common mental health issues and provide tools to help improve mental health. ADHS has a crisis hotline for people in Maricopa County that are in immediate need of mental health services. The hotline number is 1-800-631-1314. ADHS also offers culturally competent services for the many specialized populations in the Phoenix area including the elderly, children, veterans, and Native Americans. Information about mental health screenings, drugs and addiction, and services for children with mental health issues are available by calling the Division of Behavioral Health Services at 602-364-4558. 3

Therapy Affordability Meter for Phoenix, AZ

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Phoenix, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Phoenix may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Phoenix public health department.
