Give an Hour’s Reserve Component Program (RCP) officially serves the U.S. Army and Air National Guard and the U.S Army Reserve; however, we assist other reserve branches upon request. Providers and organizational volunteers who enroll in the RCP commit to maintain the highest levels of professional and cultural understanding of Guard, Reserve, and their families through research, training, and community events. Utilizing existing Guard, Reserve and Give an Hour programming, RCP providers and general volunteers actively seek out opportunities in their local community to encourage help seeking behavior, promote available mental health services, recruit additional service providers, and provide awareness of the Five Signs of emotional suffering.
How Does Give an Hour Help?
- Give an Hour attends Yellow Ribbon and Unit events, educating Guard, Reserve, and families on the Five Signs of emotional suffering and how to access care through Give an Hour’s provider network
Community Support and Partnership
- Give an Hour works directly with Guard and Reserve personnel to identify and assist with specific projects nationwide, including connecting to local support resources outside of the Give an Hour network
In-person, Telephone, and Video Therapy
- When clinically appropriate, Give an Hour offers additional options for geographically dispersed and underserved areas such as care over the phone and HIPAA compliant virtual counseling.
