Program Overview

Give an Hour and 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.

Give an Hour’s MilSpouse Network will help spouses:

  • Connect with mentors
  • Identify accredited graduate programs
  • Secure clinical supervision for licensure
  • Understand licensure requirements and portability

The National Military Family Association will help spouses:

  • Pay for school through NMFA scholarships
  • Pay for licensure and fees through NMFA professional funds
  • Find loan forgiveness opportunities
  • Connect with peers
