Who are we
A Give an Hour Network Mental Health Professional is licensed and accepts Give an Hour program participants into their practice. MHP’s hold or use one session per week for those with significant barrier to mental health services; including financial inability to pay. By doing so, the Give an Hour MHP decentralizes community mental health support systems and increases the opportunity for those who may not receive care to find the help they need.
What we do
Give an Hour MHP’s have the flexibility to choose to accept as many or as few clients as they wish. Access the portal and update availability at any time. Build your cultural competence, collaborate with and meet new colleagues, and your mental health practice – all while donating time back to your community.
MHP’s who are not currently licensed or interested in offering clinical care can still serve with Give an Hour. Contact Us to learn more about ways to participate outside of clinical services.
Curate, Contribute & Connect
Give an Hour’s work is for everyone, but our national counseling referrals are strictly for limited partnerships serving four populations of need.
While some will always need therapy (and we believe ALL can benefit from care) we know that the number of available mental health providers doesn’t match the mental health crisis in America. That’s why Give an Hour is changing the face of mental health in partnership with mental health professionals but not the sole responsibility of mental health professionals – by developing upstream approaches to wellness to complement individual counseling We invite you to help us lead the way.
As a network mental health professional you can offer your valuable insight to provide just in time consultation, expertise and training to a population we serve. You can participate in valuable training programs and impact the “bottom line” of mental health in America.
