What it means to be “healthy” is being redefined to include not only physical health but also mental health and well-being. In San Diego County, the Live Well San Diego vision supports this well-rounded concept of health. Utilizing county health data and Esri Market Potential data, spatial analyses were conducted to examine associations between social determinants of mental health and mental health outcomes among the subregional areas (SRAs) in the county. Results show differences among SRAs.
