Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Detroit

Recent years have not been kind to Detroit. Rampant poverty has negatively affected the city. As the economy worsened, so too did the battle many Detroit residents have with substance abuse. In 2009 alone, nearly 95,000 emergency room visits were made for drug abuse and misuse.2 Drug abuse is always unfortunate, especially when it involves family violence. Among the most often reported incidents of family violence in Detroit are physical, emotional, and mental abuse of significant others and children.3

The Youth Development Commission offers a wide range of programs that seek to empower the youth of Detroit to better their life situations. Before and after school programs provide a safe place for children to learn, play, and develop skills they need to be successful in life. Children can set academic and personal goals and, with the help of the staff, work to achieve those goals. A work readiness training program gives children who want to overcome financial and personal barriers a pathway to future success by helping them develop skills they need to secure long-term employment.
