Newport Beach is a highly desirable community in which to live, and also serves as a destination for the many tourists that visit southern California. Over one-fourth of the households in the city have an annual income of $200,000 or more, making it one of the most affluent cities in the nation. Balboa Pier is one of the city's top attractions, as are its pristine beaches. For families who like to shop, Newport Center is a great place to find items for every member of the family. The center sits on a bluff overlooking Newport Harbor, giving visitors a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean.1

Mental Health in Newport Beach

Residents of Newport Beach experience many mental health and substance abuse issues that are common throughout Orange County. Over 15 percent of area residents engage in illegal drug use, including marijuana and prescription pills. As a result, approximately 9 percent of the area's population has a substance abuse disorder. Another common mental health condition, depression, is also common in the area. About 5.4 percent of individuals aged 12 or over have experienced a major depressive episode in the last 12 months.2

Hunger prevents many individuals in Orange County from operating at their best. Work and school become difficult, decision-making is impaired, and poor decisions lead to even more difficulties in life. The Second Harvest Food Bank feeds nearly a quarter of a million people each month with over one million pounds of quality, nutritious food. The food bank is able to put 90 cents for every dollar that is donated toward feeding the hungry, largely due to the massive volunteer effort put forth each day by hundreds of people who seek to improve the lives of others. For more information about Second Harvest, or to inquire about donating time, food, or money, call 949-653-2900.3
