Give An Hour is a national network of mental health professionals that have pledged to provide free, confidential support to military veterans and their families. Over the past 10 years, they have provided thousands of hours of care to our community and are working to change the way that we think about mental health.
On this week’s podcast, we have the privilege of speaking with Nancy St. Claire and Rebecca Morrison, two incredible ladies who are working hard at Give An Hour’s mission.
Nancy is a licensed therapist and currently serves as Give An Hour’s COO. She began her journey as a cultural anthropologist serving alongside soldiers in Iraq. After seeing war first-hand, she ultimately decided to study psychology and practice in a clinical setting.
Rebecca is a program specialist at Give An Hour and works closely with organizations like Team RWB, Team Rubicon, and The Mission Continues to provide peer support and suicide prevention programs. She is a Gold Star spouse and has also worked with families and survivors at TAPS.
We have a very honest and sometimes raw conversation that covers:
• Why we should stop using the word ‘stigma’
• The importance of maintaining our mental well being
• The value of seeing a counselor and asking for help
• Why you should absolutely ask ‘the question’
Team RWB really appreciates Give An Hour’s work and their partnership. Nancy and Rebecca are making a difference and we know you’ll appreciate their perspective on this very important topic.
