Dr. Van Dahlen is Changing the Story

"I began Give an Hour with the hope that it could someday serve to assist, support and perhaps even augment the services available through the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. I was a bit na├»ve to think that just because I had an idea – regardless of how good it turned out to be – that DoD and the VA would be interested in partnering. It has taken 9 years of heavy lifting to develop the trust that we now have with our friends and colleagues in the military community. I was sitting on a beach with my family when I received the notice last summer that I had been selected for the Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Award. I cried when I read the email. I was overwhelmed with pride and gratitude. April 28th was an amazing day – one that I will remember for the rest of my life. And more important than the honor I received, are the relationships that I now have with colleagues in the military who understand that mental health is not a military issue – they understand that we must change the way we think about, talk about and address mental health as a nation. They will help with the campaign and they will be excellent partners as we Change the Story."
