San Jose is home to such companies as Adobe Systems, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and eBay.1 With such technical giants, it is no wonder it is an affluent area of the United States with a relatively low unemployment. Part of the low unemployment rate is because of the proximity of quality four-year universities, such as Santa Clara University, San Jose State University, and Stanford University, which is considered an Ivy League equivalent school. To match the brilliant students at these universities, San Jose also has more patents produced than any other city. The cost of living in San Jose is also one if the highest in California, as well as the nation, with housing costs contributing to the majority of the reasons for the high cost of living. Interestingly though, the residents of San Jose are rated as having some of the highest levels of disposable income, despite the high cost of living.

Since minorities are generally underserved when it comes to mental health services,3 mental health practitioners at public and private agencies must work diligently to ensure that everyone who requires mental health care has access to it.

The Santa Clara chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) works to reduce the stigma of living with a behavioral health issue.

The organization also provides valuable information for individuals in crisis, people looking for support groups, and family-related educational courses.
