Become a Give an Hour Provider:
*Volunteer providers are licensed mental health professionals who set aside one session per week for one year for a free client in the population(s) of their choice, starting with the military population. Services may be provided by phone, in person or using HIPAA compliant telehealth platform (provided at no charge).
In addition to direct counseling, Give an Hour’s providers work to reduce the stigma associated with mental health treatment and encourage care for our mental well-being and the mental well-being of others. Licensed volunteers may also opt to participate in other methods of support such as support groups, supporting emotionally impactful events, outreach to professional networks, speaking opportunities and more. A provider is NOT required to give clinical care to serve with Give an Hour, however all providers are encouraged to participate by giving their expertise.
Not all mental health professionals will have a client all year, and not all providers choose to give therapy hours as their time! Many different types of providers sign up to work with GAH, but all must be licensed to provide therapy.
The commitment is flexible and Give an Hour works with you to ensure you are receiving the information, training and tools to be successful including:
- Free Continuing Education
- Free and discounted tools such as Therapy Notes, ReGroup Therapy virtual platform, listing on major referral sources
- Free opportunities to connect with experts and professionals in your area of interest
Healing Begins with YOU
One hour a week can truly make a difference in someone’s life. If you are a licensed mental health professional carrying malpractice insurance, visit our registration page for additional information on how you can serve as a provider in the Give an Hour network. Opportunities are available for non-licensed volunteers as well!
