Give an Hour providers are essential volunteers during this pandemic, and we are here to support you – both in your volunteerism and in your practice. Mental Health professionals remain critical to our nation’s continued success, and even more so during this time. Like you, we expect to see increased need for access to mental health care as many individuals with new and existing conditions face grief, loss, uncertainty, anxiety and financial transitions.
