Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen was a professional child psychologist in 2005 when she saw a news report about veterans and active service men and women suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Her father was a career military man and so she knew first-hand the impacts of war on soldiers and their families. She felt compelled to help and was certain other health care professionals would offer this potentially life saving care, too. Give an Hour was born and today the program is available in every state and has provided over 50,000 hours of free care to military personnel involved in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and their families.
