Mental Health in La Quinta

La Quinta is a resort city, so the local population is relatively low at nearly 39,000 and tourism is the city�s primary source of income.2 Crime rates in La Quinta are generally low and assault is the crime with the highest frequency.3 City residents report approximately 3.88 per 1,000 person assault rate, which is lower than the national average but high for a city with such a low population. Assault may become an ongoing form of abuse or be a onetime attack as a result of violence or robbery. Either way, the psychological trauma that results can lead to a range of disorders, depression, or a general feeling of unease.

Being a resort town, there are wide range of people in retirement age who choose to settle in this bustling town. A highlight of the community is the La Quinta Senior Center, which offers a wide range of services to adults 55 years of age or older.  In an effort to keep this population emotionally healthy, seminars, programs,and special events are run at the Senior Center, which is located at 78-450 Avenida La Fonda and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  To reach the Senior Center, you may phone 760-564-0096.4

Current Initiatives

The Riverside County Department of Mental Health is the largest mental health awareness and treatment program in the county.5 The department�s three main programs, Substance Abuse Services, Mental Health Services, and Public Guardian�s Office, work together to provide culturally sensitive services to individuals suffering from psychological disorders and mental illness.

The Department�s Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) of 2005 was designed to increase funding for mental health services in the county by implementing a 1% tax on residents who have a personal income over $1 million. Since its implementation, the quality and variety of mental health services available in La Quinta and the rest of Riverside County has improved consistently.
