Located south of Los Angeles, Torrance, CA has a population of around 147,000 residents1 and is the sixth largest city in the Los Angeles area. Torrance was established back in 1784 when the land grant, Rancho San Pedro Spanish was issued by Juan Jose Dominguez, and subsequently signed by the King of the Spanish Empire, King Carlos III. It was in the early 1900s that Jared Torrance, a real estate developer, developed the city. Torrance, along with other land developers, was interested in making the area an industrial/residential community. Torrance was close enough to Los Angeles to experience the big city, but far enough away to become its own city, which was officially incorporated in 1921.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Torrance

Research shows that many populations in Torrance and Los Angeles County are underserved when it comes to mental health care. In particular, children and families seem to have difficulty finding quality, affordable, and culturally competent services. Young children and adolescents in families under stress are at-risk for developing depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Couples in which one partner is abusive to the other also face many challenges, because services for both victims and abusers can be limited.2

Senior members of the family often face a variety of mental health and physical health-related issues with which younger family members provide assistance. H.E.L.P is a Torrance-based agency that offers support services to elderly community members and their caregivers. The agency provides educational and instructional support to caregivers. Assistance with long-term care planning is also available. Many classes are offered by H.E.L.P., including those that assist caregivers in navigating legal issues such as power of attorney and probate. Additional information about these programs is available by calling 310-533-1996.3

Family Services and Assistance Programs

Families in need of food, child-related services, legal assistance, or disaster relief programs can find the help they need at the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army provides nutritious meals to thousands of Torrance residents throughout the year. Families who cannot afford school supplies for their children can take part in Operation Back Pack, in which a new backpack full of school supplies is donated to a needy child. Free medical screenings are also offered as part of the annual health fair. After school and day camp programs are also available for children in kindergarten through the fifth grade. Additional details about the Salvation Army's programs is available by calling 310-370-4515.4
