Here Are Some FStageSettingtheStageacts to Help Set the Stage about the Mentally Ill in Pasco County

♦ According the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2014, Pasco County’s population is 464,697.

♦ Of this number, 13.9% live below the poverty level—and we know that poverty is an added barrier to receiving adequate treatment for mental illness.

♦ Pasco County has the 4th highest suicide rate in the state of Florida. [http://patch.com/florida/newportrichey/pasco-has-4th-highest-suicide-rate-in-state]

♦ Of the 464,697 Pasco residents, 50,239 are U.S. Military veterans; we also know being a veteran correlates with high incidences of mental illness/substance abuse and suicide.

♦ According to NAMI, “1 in 4 people experiences mental illness in a year.” And of course their families are deeply affected too. 

♦ This translates to mean approximately 116,172 or 25% of Pasco County residents could stand to benefit annually from our supports.
