To develop resilient individuals and communities; to grow our social impact through responsive, scalable, individualized mental health programs aimed at closing access and delivery gaps to mental health care.


Expand no-cost, barrier-free mental health care for those impacted by human-made traumas by growing and scaling our mental health services and mental health provider network.

Give an Hour’s Approach

Everything we do is informed through the knowledge gained from lived experiences. 

We listen to what individuals want and need, educate mental health providers to understand the community on a deeper level, and customize our services and supports to be responsive toward long term health and happiness – for the impacted individual as well as their loved ones.

Journey Mapping

The process of identifying gaps in services and the unmet needs of the community or population through surveys, focus groups, one-on-one interviews and case studies.

Informed Response

Implementing key mental health and emotional wellness prevention and intervention services to reduce the gaps that are identified in the mapping process.

Continuous Improvement

Needs constantly change. Give an Hour uses ongoing metrics to improve our response in real time. These services continue to address humanmade trauma.

Creating Resilient Communities

Analyzing and sharing data driven solutions with those who need them most - the communities in which we live. Empowering sustainable communities through education.

It's time to make mental health everyone's priority. Let's create a healthy, resilient world together.
