Mental Health America Announces Support of Give An Hour
September 14, 2009
Give an Hour is a national nonprofit organization that provides free mental health services to members of the military, veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, their families and their communities. Providers for this service are present in all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
Mental Health America is proud of their newfound partnership as both organizations will work to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues within the military and veteran communities as well as the general public. The president and CEO of Mental Health America, David Shem Ph.D. said, “It is critically important that we remove the barriers of stigma and fear and ensure our brave young men and women can receive services that help heal the invisible wounds of war.”
