By harnessing the skills and generosity of citizens 
across our nation and around the world,

we provide those in need with help and hope.
We offer those who care the 
opportunity to give.

Give an Hour’s mission is to develop national networks of volunteer professionals capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. Since 2005 we have focused on providing free and confidential mental health care to those who serve, our veterans, and their families. We have since expanded our efforts to address the mental health needs of other populations. Through the generosity, compassion, and expertise of Give an Hour’s skilled volunteers, we are able to increase the likelihood that those in need receive the support and care they deserve.

Will you answer the call to serve?

We invite all mental health professionals to give the gifts of time and expertise to help those in need.

Please take a moment to watch this important message.

Help Change Direction.

Give an Hour provides help and hope to those in need by harnessing the skills and generosity of those willing to give. In 2015, we launched the Campaign to Change Direction to change the culture of mental health so that all in need are able to receive the care and support they deserve. Just as we know the signs of a heart attack, we can all learn the Five Signs of emotional suffering that tell us someone is in pain and needs help. To learn more, visit changedirection.org.
