Also once known as the bedroom of the Silicon Valley and San Francisco, San Jose is home to the colleges of San Jose State, Santa Clara University, and Stanford University, which send thousands of graduates into the local job market each year. Many major technological companies are headquartered here and San Jose has earned the distinction as the Capital City of the Silicon Valley. If getting out and enjoying the out of doors is what you like to do, then check out Alum Rock Park, which is a 700+ acre park that is the oldest municipal park in California.1 There are numerous activities that keep San Jose booming with activity. These include sporting events and venues, but also several museums and must-see structures, such as the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, which is the oldest parish in California.

Mental Health in San Jose

San Jose is a rapidly growing, highly diverse city with large populations of Asian and Hispanic residents, a large percentage of residents under the age of 18, tens of thousands of foreign-born residents2 and well over 30,000 armed forces veterans.3 The city's diversity creates a cultural melting pot with many languages, traditions, and beliefs. As a result, mental health practitioners in the city take a multicultural approach in order to deliver culturally competent care to their clients.

Elderly individuals who require support and assistance in order to live independently can find many services available through On Lok Lifeways. On Lok offers in-home care to seniors throughout the San Jose area, so that they can remain in their own homes rather than moving to a nursing home. Nutrition services help maintain seniors' health. Recreational programs, such as art classes, help seniors exercise their mind and provide them with an opportunity to interact with friends. Mental health services provide emotional and social support. For additional information about On Lok's services, please call 415-292-8888.4

Current Education

The San Jose area offers many graduate and post-graduate educational options for people wanting to further their education in the human services field. The Master of Social Work program at San Jose State University places a special emphasis on working with populations that are underserved by the mental health system. Graduates of the program are qualified to conduct individual and group therapy, work in community mental health centers, and advocate on behalf of at-risk populations. The MSW program offers multiple training opportunities to expand the breadth of clinical expertise. For more information about the MSW program at San Jose State, call the School of Social Work at 408-924-5800.5
