Psychiatry can and must play a primary role in ameliorating the emerging mental health crisis within the military community. APA has been instrumental in the growth of a national nonprofit organization named Give an Hour (Psychiatric News, March 7, 2008, and May 16, 2008). We have partnered with Give an Hour (GAH) in its effort to provide free mental health care to those who serve and their families. The partnership of APA, the American Psychiatric Foundation, and GAH is an excellent example of how we can apply the knowledge and expertise of psychiatry to educate, inform, and engage with community organizations. To date GAH has recruited more than 5,000 psychiatrists and other licensed mental health professionals to provide free evaluation, treatment, and other services to members of the military, veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq, their families, and their communities.
