Military Services Pioneer Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen among Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People in the World!

Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen

Dr. Barbara van Dahlen founded Give an Hour in 2005 to encourage the utilization of mental health services among returning veterans. As a member of Give an Hour, mental health professionals provide a minimum of 1 hour per week of free counseling to soldiers and their families. Give an hour has helped thousands and thousands of servicemen/women and their families to recover from the wide spectrum of mental health issues and challenges they confront upon return to civilian life – or during deployment.

Barbara Van Dahlen has worked tirelessly to recruit mental health professionals and cultivate associations with military organizations which can help encourage and promote these lifesaving services. She was among the first to recognize and emphasize the vulnerability of military wives to postpartum depression.

Please join me in congratulating this tireless pioneer whose consistent efforts have elevated the spirits and mental health of our nation’s bravest. I am proud to be a member of Give an Hour’s Team. If you would like to join this organization and contribute some time to our nation’s heroes, please visit the website and sign up!
