Mental Health in Detroit

The percentage of people in Detroit, Michigan with mental health issues is at 18%. Approximately 1 in 5 people are affected by mental health issues. The most common type of mental health issue is depression, which is at 4%. 1 in 25 people have schizophrenia, and 1 in 100 have PTSD.

The numbers for Detroit are fairly similar to the national average of people affected by mental illness (18%). The percentage of people with schizophrenia or PTSD was slightly higher than the national average at 1.5%, but this number has decreased since the previous study done in 2011-2012 where it was found that 2% had schizophrenia and 3% had PTSD. This decrease may be due to increased awareness about these conditions seeing as they are less stigmatized now than they were four years ago.


There are very few studies done on how many people with mental health issues are homeless in any given city. A study done in Milwaukee, Wisconsin shows that approximately 10% of the homeless population is experiencing some type of mental health issue. This number has increased recently due to the lack of affordable housing and low-income wages for workers.

The figures for mental health problems are staggering when compared between races. African Americans had an overall rate of 20% while whites were at 17%. The difference between these two numbers was even more apparent when looking at specific conditions such as PTSD which affected 1% of blacks but only 0.3% of whites; schizophrenia was found at 1.5% among blacks while only 0.4% percent of whites had it; major depression was 4 times higher in blacks than whites (7 vs 1.7%), and lastly, bipolar disorder was found at 1.7% among blacks compared to 0.3% of whites. This data is very upsetting because African Americans are the minority in Detroit but they are disproportionately affected by mental health problems, especially schizophrenia, PTSD, major depression, and bipolar disorder.

This is a statistic that has come about as a result of looking at many different studies done on mental health conditions in Detroit over the past 10 years. The percentage of people with mental illness has stayed fairly constant since before 2005 ranging from 18-26%. However, this information fails to take into account how often people have more than one condition at once which could be important when considering treatment options for those who need them.
