Give an Hour is excited to announce the launch of Give an Hour California – our first regional initiative designed to expand and deepen GAH services in communities across California.
Since 2005, Give an Hour has harnessed the skills of mental health professionals across the country to provide free mental health care and support for members of the military, our veterans (regardless of discharge status, deployment status, or era of service), and their families. In 2015, Give an Hour launched the Campaign to Change Direction, a broad public health effort focused on changing the culture of mental health for everyone so that all in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign to Change Direction encourages everyone to know the Five Signs of emotional suffering and to pay attention to our emotional well-being just as we do our physical health.
Give an Hour California combines both efforts and encourages mental health professionals to donate hours of direct service and/or to assist with the Change Direction public health initiative in your community.
