Military Spouse Mental Health Profession Pipeline

group of adults networking

The National Military Family Association (NMFA) and Give an Hour, with the support of United Health Foundation, have teamed up to ease spouses’ transitions from graduate school through licensure to jobs in behavioral health.

Our goal? Alleviate the national shortage of providers, and enhance the wellness of service members, veterans, and military families.

Military spouses struggle to enter the mental health profession due to frequent moves and other lifestyle challenges. Through NMFA’s scholarship and advocacy efforts, combined with Give an Hour’s Military Spouse Mental Health Profession Network, designed to connect and guide spouses, we plan to tackle them.
