Counseling Raleigh North Carolina

Garner, Cary, Knightdale, Zebulon, Clayton, Apex

Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and has been named the "City of Oaks" because of the many oak trees that populate the city. The population in the city is around 423,000, with over one million in the metropolitan area, and is the second largest city in North Carolina.1 The city was created in December 1770. In 1788, it was named as North Carolina's capital. The city was named for Sir Walter Raleigh in 1792. The city's location was determined because there were no towns or cities already established. Raleigh is the only state capital that was planned and built specifically to serve as the state's capital city. Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill make up the three cities of the research triangle of the metropolitan area. The Research Triangle was created in 1959, which includes the U.S. Census Bureau's Combined Statistical Area (CSA). Forbes magazine has named Raleigh number one of 200 best places for business and careers.

Mental Health in Raleigh

About 7.4 percent of Raleigh residents report having a substance abuse disorder. While this is well below the national average, it still means that thousands of citizens struggle with addiction and dependency. Mental illness is also less common in Raleigh, with just over 6 percent of the population reporting a major depressive episode in the past year. However, with nearly one-fourth of the population engaging in smoking and binge drinking, there are still substance-related problems that present difficulties for many individuals in Raleigh.2

The Poe Center for Health Education is a non-profit organization whose primary mission is to educate North Carolina's children about making positive choices that improve their overall health. One of the Poe Center's primary issues is bullying prevention. The center's age-based programs inform children about bullying, provide guided steps for reporting bullying, and lend support to those who have experienced or witnessed bullying. Programs include a self-reflection component, in which children are encouraged to discover their innate ability to respect others and support one another. Further information about the Poe Center's programs is available by calling 919-231-4006.3

Current Initiatives

In order to address the mental health and substance abuse crisis that is currently afflicting the state, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has begun the Crisis Solutions Initiative. The central focus of the program is to bring stakeholders together in order to improve the delivery of mental health services statewide. A key component of improving services is to expand upon local practices that have a demonstrated positive effect. Programs such as youth mental health, walk-in crisis centers, and crisis intervention teams will be part of the initiative. To learn more about the Crisis Solutions Initiative, please call 919-855-4840.4
