Program Overview

Give an Hour, in partnership with the National Military Family Association, with the support of the Bob Woodruff Foundation, have teamed up to help ease the transition from graduate school through licensure to jobs in behavioral health for military spouses.

Our goal? Alleviate the national shortage of providers and enhance the wellness of service members, veterans, and military families.

Military spouses struggle to enter the mental health profession due to frequent moves and other lifestyle challenges. With NMFA’s scholarship and advocacy efforts and Give an Hour’s Military Spouse Mental Health Profession Network connecting and guiding spouses, we plan to tackle them.

Join the Network!

Current or former military spouse (all branches, including Reserve and National Guard) are eligible to join the MilSpouse Network to gain resources, provide or receive mentorship and/or supervision. As of June 19th, the MilSpouse program is not accepting new participants. Please email milspousenetwork@giveanhour.org to join our waiting list.

If you are NOT a current or former military spouse, but you are a licensed mental health professional interested in offering clinical supervision at a reduced cost or becoming a professional mentor to a military spouse, please sign up as a Give an Hour provider by clicking the green box below and indicate your interest on the registration form. If you are already a Give an Hour provider, please update your profile to indicate your interest in the MilSpouse Network.
