The city itself offers a preschool program for children under age five, and summer day camps for school-age children and teenagers. A Youth Activity Center offers after-school activities, as well as a drop-in gathering place for community teenagers. The center also offers a variety of special events aimed at teenagers.

A little less than 83% of the population has been living in the same home for over a year, which creates a more stable environment, which can be helpful for people suffering from mental health problems. The average number of people living in a household is 2.57 and 8.6% of the population falls below poverty threshold.2 In addition, the city also has poor ratings for safety and schools are located high on the charts for suspension and expulsion rates over drug abuse and violence�in fact, there is over a 6% suspension rate.3

These are just a few of the indicators that lead to mental illness in children and adults. Conditions like this can lead to depression, drug abuse, violence, paranoia, and overall poor mental health. Suicide and crimes are problems that are not unheard of in this area and, though the government and other organizations have taken steps to help the conditions, mental health issues are still a problem and cases are appearing more frequently. Mental illnesses are issues that need to be solved on an individual level as each case is unique in its own way.
