Through “Give an Hour to Change Direction” we are expanding our efforts and creating opportunities for mental health professionals to serve their local communities through a range of volunteer service opportunities.

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 to Change Direction 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.

If you are interested in serving the survivors of human trafficking, their families, and their caregivers in Northern Virginia, please join us and Give an Hour to Change Direction.  We are proud to be working with the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative in this effort.
