Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Madison

Madison is home to nearly 500,000 people, including approximately 100,000 married couples.2 The city's divorce rate is fairly low at 8.1 percent. However, marriages that end in divorce often do so because of serious issues, such as infidelity, economic hardship, or domestic abuse. These problems not only negatively impact couples, but also any children in the household. Although the percentage of couples living in the same household for over a year is nearly 80 percent, as the time goes on it becomes more likely for families to develop issues. Hence, there is a growing need for mental health services and family assistance facilities in the Madison area.3

Madison families in need of assistance can turn to the Salvation Army for support. Emergency housing is available for families who find themselves without a home of their own. Employment programs are offered as well, including assistance in searching for jobs. The food pantry provides poverty-stricken families with much-needed nutritional food. These services are aimed at helping families resolve economic hardships so that they can focus on creating a happy, healthy, and safe home. For additional information, call 608-256-2321.4
