SERVING SANTA CLARA COUNTY FOR OVER 50 YEARS, ACT PROVIDES VITAL, AFFORDABLE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES TO ANYONE IN NEED
ACT for Mental Health is a nonprofit that brings communities closer together by providing quality, affordable mental health counseling
and educational services.
ACT offers services and activities designed to:
Support, encourage and facilitate better mental health
Enhance abilities and skills to cope with everyday living – to work, to relate to others, to play, to enjoy life, to realize one's potential
Our staff includes licensed psychologists, therapists, counselors and interns.
ACT was incorporated in 1956 to sponsor the client-managed “Fireside Friendship Club” for persons with serious mental illness. FFC was a therapeutic, social club that worked to establish a firm foundation for everyday life.
Over the years ACT earned a strong reputation for intervention, innovation, and therapy. ACT has diversified, and its mental health services now extend to individual, family and group therapy, with a focus on parent/child reunification, child trauma, and healing families.
