Placerville is a small community of approximately 10,000 residents situated near Sacramento. The city was once known as Old Dry Diggings, which refers to the way gold miners moved dry soil to running water to separate the gold during the Gold Rush in the early 1800s. Later on, the city became known as �Hangtown,� because of the many hangings that occurred there. It wasn't until 1854 that the name Placerville became official. Today, Placerville's economy is more agricultural, with many wineries in the area.1 And while many historical landmarks harken back to the rough and tumble days of the Gold Rush, life today is much quieter for the city's residents.

Mental Health in Placerville

El Dorado County ranks high in terms of overall health as well as health outcomes. The county is the sixth healthiest in the state of California. The county also ranks fifth in terms of positive influences on the health of residents.2 However, this does not mean that mental health issues, substance abuse issues, homelessness and other significant concerns are not present in the county. In fact, many citizens struggle with common behavioral health issues such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts.

Feelings of grief and loss after the death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Fortunately, Placerville residents can find caring and compassionate support at Snowline Hospice. Snowline Hospice offers free grief support groups for those who have lost a loved one in the past 18 months. Eight-week sessions help adults learn how to cope with loss. Family groups provide children, teens, and their parents a place to grieve together. The holidays can be particularly sad after the death of a family member or friend, so Snowline Hospice offers six-week long holiday support groups as well. To learn more about these programs, call 530-621-7820.3

Current Initiatives

Studies show that children who receive early medical and mental health care are healthier, better equipped to learn, and have more success in school. The Children's Health Initiative seeks to improve access to physical and mental health care for families who have children under the age of five. Children can receive dental and vision care, parents can sign up for insurance coverage, and learn about proper child seat safety. Parenting resources are also made available as part of the initiative. Parents can learn about developmental stages their child goes through, as well as effective ways to manage negative behaviors and discipline their children. More information about the initiative is available by calling First 5 El Dorado at 530-622-5787.4
