Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Atlanta

Atlanta and Fulton County have extremely high poverty rates. As of 2012, 24.3 percent of Atlanta citizens lived below the poverty line, including many couples and families.2 In addition to the challenges this presents for finding quality, affordable health care, the poor must also contend with issues related to housing, food and nutrition, education, and employment. Many poverty-stricken families additionally struggle with substance use and mental health issues. Nearly 15 percent of Atlanta residents have used an illegal drug in the past year, and almost 6 percent of the population suffered a major depressive episode in the past year.3

Agencies like Families First seek to help couples and families overcome obstacles to lead healthier lives. Educational programs are offered to help parents learn how to effectively parent their children. Parents learn how to provide their children with the support they need in order to develop into fully-functioning members of society.

Children in foster care can participate in the TeenWork program, which provides summer jobs for young people aged 16-21.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Atlanta, GA

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Atlanta, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Atlanta may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Atlanta public health department.
