NASW endorses Give an Hour, free mental health services for military and families

NASW is pleased to endorse Give an Hour, a nonprofit organization that gives free mental health services to U.S. military personnel and families. Give an Hour is working to develop a national network of volunteers for addressing the psychological symptoms directly related to deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give an Hour also offers services to parents, siblings, and unmarried partners who are not entitled to receive mental health benefits through the military.

You can help by donating an hour of your services to a soldier or family member that the Department of Defense has identified as needing mental health services. After receiving professional services, participants are matched with community organizations that are in need of volunteers. Participants benefit in two ways, by having their psychological needs addressed and helping out in their own communities.
