Prior to being named Pasadena, the city was known as Indiana Colony for the doctor and his patients who settled there, citing a better place for their respiratory ailments. The postmaster required the colony to change its name that was more fitting. Seeking the assistance of an Indian missionary, names for the colony that were put forth ended with Pasadena, which means Crown of the Valley.1 Thus in 1886, the name was voted on and passed, renaming the area to Pasadena when the city was incorporated. A rich Texan passed through Pasadena on his way back to Houston, and liked it so much, that he named a city in Texas that contained two bayous, Pasadena, after the city in California, based on its lush vegetation. The city continued to grow in popularity, drawing people from all over the country. There was a large population boom from the 1880s through the Great Depression. It also became a winter resort for Easterners.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Pasadena

Although fewer people are getting married, couples of all sorts, from same-sex couples in a long-term, committed relationship, to young adults who are casually dating, experience common difficulties that face married couples. Stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues can strain any relationship. Additionally, poor communication skills can lead to misunderstandings, arguments, and hurt feelings. Money is also a very common factor that strains relationships.2

The Los Angeles Department of Mental Health undergoes outreach and education efforts to help county residents acquire the knowledge and skills they need to lead mentally healthy lives. This includes referring couples and families who are having relationship difficulties to local resources that can provide help. From homelessness to mental illness, the Department of Mental Health has the programs necessary to help couples and families in need. Additional information about the department's offerings can be obtained by calling 800-854-7771.3

Family Services and Assistance Programs

The Foothill Family Service, in cooperation with public mental health agencies throughout the area, provides Pasadena families with a variety of programs that support families with special needs. For families with children under the age of five, Foothill offers school readiness programs, as well as targeted interventions for children who exhibit developmental delays. Families who have experienced abuse can find help as well. Foothill provides services to all demographics, but poor and low-income families comprise the bulk of their clientele. For more information about Foothill and the programs they provide, call 626-993-3000.4
