Provide Mental Health Support for Tornado Impacted Tennessee Community

GIVE AN HOUR NONPROFIT CORPORATION

Give an Hour

Are you a licensed mental health provider passionate about serving your community? Your one hour of support* can change someone’s life. Join Us at Give an Hour to start making an impact today.

Give an Hour Providers
(licensed mental health professionals) are volunteers who set aside one session per week for one year to provide no cost care to military, veterans and loved ones or victims of manmade or natural disaster. Services may be provided by phone, in person, or using HIPAA compliant video counseling platform.

Tennessee Tornado 2020: As with many other previous natural disasters of this magnitude, Give an Hour is opening its network of volunteer mental health professionals to help with the critical need to provide FREE mental health services to those experiencing trauma, loss, grief, and anxiety. The trauma of witnessing the destruction of one’s home and community or losing loved ones can give rise to anxiety and depression. The long period of rebuilding perpetuates people’s feelings of uncertainty and chronic stress and loss of control. Give an Hour has the expertise to help those in need now and in the future. We will remain available and accessible months and years into the future as Nashville and the surrounding affected communities rebuild and heal.

A provider is NOT required to provide clinical care to serve with Give an Hour, however all providers are required to hold a license in their state. Not all mental health professionals will have a client all year, and not all providers choose to give therapy hours as their time! 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.

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!

Mission Statement

Give an Hour’s mission is to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. By harnessing the skill and expertise of volunteer professionals, we are able to increase the likelihood that those in need receive the support and care they deserve.

Description

We believe that within our communities we have the resources to address many of the challenges that face our society. These challenges, such as time in military service or victims of crime, often result in emotional pain and suffering. Since 2005 we have focused on providing free mental health care to active duty, National Guard and Reserve service members, veterans, and their families. In 2015, Give an Hour launched the Campaign to Change Direction, a public health effort designed to change the culture of mental health so that those who are suffering emotionally are better able to seek and receive care. In 2016, we began expanding our efforts to address the mental health needs of other populations. Presently, we are seeking licensed mental health professionals to serve multiple populations.
