Mental Health in Clarington

The municipality of Clarington is located in Ontario, and has a total of 84,548 people living there, at the latest census count. It is over 600 square kilometers in size, making it a very large area with a low population density´┐Żless than 150 people live in every square kilometer of land. Because of the progress that has been made by the municipality, more people have started moving here, and the population saw an increase of over 8%. Things are looking up for this area and many things have already started to improve.

One problem that has yet to be solved, however, is the mental health concern. Recently 9% of the population was reported to have been hospitalized for mental illnesses such as depression, attempted suicide, schizophrenia, anxiety, or other such problems. These are pretty high rates, and many of mental patients had to be readmitted to the hospital within 30 days, for similar problems.2 There are many different options and treatment opportunities for people who are suffering from mental illness. One great example is the COPE Mental Health program´┐Żthey offer rehabilitation and counseling for people who have mental illnesses and are unable to find help elsewhere. Their phone number is 905-623-4123 and they are open from 8:30 to 4:30 on weekdays.3
