Momentum for Mental Health – Why Work For Us?

On January 1, 1997, four respected agencies with a total of 100 years of service to the community joined together to create Momentum for Mental Health. The reasons to do this included increased ability to provide a wider array of more easily accessible, culturally competent services for people who have a mental illness; strengthen quality improvement, data systems and staff training; improve efficiency of operations; enhance community education capabilities; and continue to implement effective innovative services.

Momentum is the largest private nonprofit provider of adult mental health services in Santa Clara County. Our program and services for individuals living with a mental illness are comprehensive and include a prevention and early intervention program, adult and transitional age youth (14 to 24) out-patient services, employment services, day rehabilitation services, residential treatment, supported housing and a volunteer program. In addition, Momentum works to reduce and eliminate the stigma that surrounds mental illness and mental health care through a community relations program that promotes education, diversity and collaboration.

Momentum for Mental Health exists to help individuals achieve mental and emotional health, discover and reach their potential, and fully participate in life.
