Community Members: Change lives in the community by underscoring the importance of mental health

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: GIVE AN HOUR NONPROFIT CORPORATION

We are all vital members of our community, by demonstrating how we maintain our own healthy emotional wellbeing and our physical health can help to motivate others to do the same. Give an Hour is working hard to compile resources that share how our tools can be used during the Coronavirus to keep ourselves, and the ones we love most healthy and happy.


We are offering our tools at no cost to you to be shared via social media, email, or to display in your office, local community, or even your fridge. They are available in English and in Spanish.


We ask that you help us prioritize mental health just as we do our mental health by sharing these free resources.

We are at a crossroads when it comes to how our society addresses mental health. We know that one in five of our citizens has a diagnosable mental health condition and that more Americans are expected to die this year by suicide than in car accidents. While many of us are comfortable acknowledging publicly our physical suffering, for which we almost always seek help, many more of us privately experience mental suffering, for which we almost never reach out.

Give an Hour (tm) started the Campaign to Change Direction(tm) in 2015 to change the culture of mental health.

By bringing together concerned citizens, nonprofits, educators, and those in the private sector we are sparking a movement that:

  • frees us to see our mental health as having equal value to our physical health
  • creates a common language that allows us to recognize the signs of emotional suffering in ourselves and others
  • encourages us to care for our mental well-being and the mental well-being of others

Give an Hour

Give an Hour(tm) is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3), that harnessing the skills and generosity of licensed mental health professionals to provide those in need with help and hope. Give an Hour provides no cost mental health to specific populations, with a national focus on military and loved ones. info@giveanhour.org
