Give an Hour strives to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. Currently, Give An Hour is dedicated to meeting the mental health needs of the troops and families affected by the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The program is asking mental health professionals nationwide to literally give an hour of their time each week to provide free mental health services to military personnel and their families. Give an Hour is a non-profit organization founded in September 2005 by Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, a psychologist in the Washington, D.C., area. The program facilitates counseling for individuals, couples and families, and children and adolescents. It offers treatment for anxiety, depression, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, sexual health and intimacy concerns, and loss and grieving.
