Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Irvine

Irvine has one of the lowest domestic abuse rates in American, but despite the safety in which couples live, divorce is an imminent reality for many. With a national marriage rate of 6.8 per 1,000 people and a divorce rate of 3.8 per 1,000, marriage counseling services are in higher demand.2 Orange County unfortunately has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. With a divorce rate slightly above 60%, that is 10% higher than the national divorce average. On average, 33 people in Orange County carry out divorce proceedings every day.3

A great option to help prevent the need for divorce is the Parent Education Classes and Support Groups  provided by the Irvine Famliy Resource Center. These groups run throughout the school year, which helps parents and caregivers to learn the positive discipline skills required at home for building capable children and healthy families. For more information, please call the IFRC Program Coordinator at 949-936-7502.4

Therapy programs are also available for families. Parents can seek specialist teen counselors to help resolve issues their children may be having.
