In 2008 a RAND report claimed that over "...18 percent of troops who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan--nearly 300,000 troops--have symptoms of post-traumatic stress or major depression. At the same time, about 19 percent of service members reported that they experienced a possible traumatic brain injury," reads a website the urges mental health professionals to Give An Hour to veterans.

Give an Hour™  asks mental health professionals nationwide to literally donate an hour of their time each week to provide free mental health services to military personnel and their families.
