Program Overview

Give an Hour helps ease the transition from graduate school through licensure to jobs in behavioral health for military spouses by encouraging connections between licensed mental health professionals and military spouses.

Goals:

  • Encourage Give an Hour providers to “Give an Hour” by providing supervision or mentorship to military spouses seeking to advance in the Behavioral Health Profession
  • Support military spouses who struggle to enter the mental health profession due to frequent moves and other lifestyle challenges
  • Alleviate the national shortage of providers and enhance the wellness of service members, veterans, and military families by helping advance the next generation of mental health professionals
