Give an Hour

December 14th, 2011 by skippy

In light of my last post this seems like a good time to plug Give an Hour.

Give an Hour is a nonprofit organization that provides free mental health care to US Military personnel.  They do good work to help out the people that risked everything for the rest of us.  A lot more vets could use their services than they can possibly provide for so if you can, ambulance consider donating.  If you are a mental health professional consider donating your time.  And if you know of anyone that could use their services, please try to gently steer them in this direction.

    I would also like to point out that for active military members and their families, Militaryonesource will pay for mental health services and they are really quite generous. I didn’t know about it until we had a minor crisis after my husband returned from his last deployment.

    I’ll pass this on to anyone I think could benefit from it. It’s heartwarming to hear about volunteer organizations giving back to the people who risked their lives for us and need time to heal, physically and emotionally. Hope you’re having a wonderful non-denominational holiday season, Skippy!

    Here’s some more that also do good work:

    National Suicide Prevention Hotline, Veterans Crisis Line: 1-800-273-8255. Press 1 and you will immediately get a trained responder. Free and confidential

    Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America- support group of people who are going through every single thing you are. People to talk to who do get it: http://iava.org/

    USO: http://www.uso.org/

    Returning Veterans Project- resources for free healthcare and support for returning veterans and their families: http://www.returningveterans.org/providers/find

    Get help. It doesn’t make you less of a man or less of a service member. These are free, confidential people who want to help you any way they you need.

    And if you aren’t in this boat, please donate your time or money. These guys do good work and need your support. Make support the troops more than just a soundbyte for political points.
