Give an Hour has harnessed a network of generous and compassionate providers across the United States who use their expertise to provide free, quality mental health care to service members, veterans, their families, and their communities.
But many in our society struggle with mental health challenges, and not all have access to care. That is why Give an Hour is the backbone organization behind the Campaign to Change Direction, a collective impact effort to change the culture of mental health in America. As part of this effort, we are in the process of expanding our model to provide free mental health care to other groups in need.
We plan on expanding our efforts to provide services to a number of populations in need including
- At-risk youth
- At-risk seniors
- Native Americans and other vulnerable communities
- Firefighters and first responders
- Homeless individuals and families
- Survivors of human trafficking
- Those in the criminal justice system with mental health challenges
What is Involved with Being a Provider
By becoming a provider, you generously agree to provide one hour per week of mental health support or treatment at no charge. And, we ask that you agree to participate in the Give an Hour™ network for a minimum of one year. Throughout your time as a Give an Hour provider, you warrant you are a licensed mental health professional in good standing in the state in which you are practicing with sufficient malpractice insurance coverage.
