Volunteer Providers are licensed mental health professionals who set aside one session per week for one year for a free client in the populations 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). There is a critical need to effectively respond to the mental health needs of trauma victims and by harnessing the skills and generosity of mental health professionals, together we can provide those in need with help and hope.


We are seeing an increased strain on our military personnel and their loved ones, as the situation continues to develop, please help us to serve those who serve.

Providers simply sign up on our website as ready and available to assist someone when the need arises. 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. There is a high need for video counseling by all licensed mental health professionals and we need your help.

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.

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.

About GIVE AN HOUR NONPROFIT CORPORATION

Location:

PO BOX 5918, BETHESDA, MD 20824, US

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 mental health professionals to serve multiple populations.
