Impact

Providing no-cost mental health services since 2005 and working to change the culture of mental health.

Access

Our services are available instantly to those that qualify. Our easy-to-use provider search gives a list of providers available based on the search query. Services are no-cost, confidential, and stigma-free.

Value

Our hybrid referral system means less overhead and less delay.  It is a cost affordable care/option for those who need it. In addition to providing care to those who qualify, Give an Hour offers mental health literacy to everyone. We believe that changing the culture of mental health and community collaboration is the best possible way to provide care to everyone in need.

Literacy

We can’t treat what we don’t understand. Education that teaches communities the Five Signs of Emotional Suffering and the Healthy Habits of Emotional Wellbeing will reduce the need for escalated treatment. Better community support brings about timely care and reduction of trauma within a community.

Our aim is to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing of all persons.

I have assisted 19 servicemen and women since beginning with Give an Hour. It has been a blessing to help them get to a better place within themselves and with their partners. I'm grateful to be in a position to offer this pro bono service to them and delight in them when they make progress or have deeper understanding.

L.M.Give an Hour Provider

I want to thank you for organizing this program to provide pro bono services to veterans. I am a service connected disabled veteran and the therapists we found through your program have been working with me and my family. Amy Kohn McNelly and Dr. Karen Gail Lewis(Ccd) have been instrumental in helping our family heal, learn, and grow. We have seen and interacted with several other therapists and Amy and Karen are truly exceptional at what they do and have a genuine passion for helping others. I wholeheartedly believe they saved my life and marriage and I am thankful everyday for you putting them in our paths.

Client

I fell in love with Give an Hour when I was serving with Team Rubicon. I was in my master's program, but I knew once I was fully licensed, I would be involved. I really believe in Give an Hour's mission, and so anyway I can support, if I am able, I will.

R.S.Give an Hour Provider

This organization means a lot to me. Factually, I would not be on this earth anymore if they did not exist. In 2017, I held my personal fire arm in my hands and considered suicide as a way out just shortly after burying one of my army sons, who at the time, I felt I had majorly let down. I reached out through this organization and found a psychologist who saw me for nearly two years, the first 6 months of therapy were free and I had to twist her arm to even take my insurance card there after. She helped me understand the trauma I was experiencing and helped me find my path...

N.B.Client

As a Navy veteran of the Korean Conflict, I have been blessed and grateful for being of service to veterans and their families. ... Love and Peace to you.
