This is one of those nonprofits which I am amazed is not more recognized. It has been around for over fifty years so is probably one of San Jose's oldest. Yet, I had never heard of it until a friend told me. This is a wonderful group of staff and volunteers who provide mental health services and referrals to those with very little or no income. They do this on a shoestring budget. Please see their web site http://www.actmentalhealth.org/ for more information.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caliber of the people I have volunteered with and their kindness.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, caring, educated, informed, helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Really help those with mental health needs who have no money!

ACT for Mental Health is setup in an old building in downtown San Jose. While the building could use a remodeling job, this is a very insignificant detail in comparison to the impact of ACT for Mental Health. Not only do they provide low-cost counseling for low-income individuals and families that need mental health services, but they provide opportunities for everyone involved to make a direct impact on their community. As a volunteer, I learned about ACT's great mission and was given the freedom to spread the word about our mission in my own creative ways.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly kind and generous.
