HELP & HOPE
Trillium values the service our military veterans have given to our nation and our communities. We know the sacrifice of their service often comes home with them in the form of physical, psychological and emotional challenges. Statistics show:
- Only 43 percent of troops reported ever being evaluated by a physician for their head injuries
- Returning combat veterans suffering from depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress (PTS) are not routinely seeking the mental health treatment they need
- Only 53 percent of service members with PTS or depression sought help over the past year.

To demonstrate our commitment to support these brave warriors, Trillium has established an Initiative around the national program, Give an Hour. This program is designed to offer free mental health and counseling support to Post 9/11 military veterans and their families through volunteer clinical time.
Trillium provides opportunities in local communities throughout our 25-county area to enlist mental health professionals to learn about and become part of the Give an Hour network.
The program has been endorsed by many of the major professional associations, including:
- American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy
- American Association of Pastoral Counselors
- American Group Psychotherapy Association
- American Mental Health Counselors Association
- American Psychiatric Association
- American Psychiatric Nurses Association
- American Psychological Association
- Anxiety Disorders Association of America
- Mental Health America
- National Association of Social Workers
- North American Association of Christians in Social Work
- Therapeutic Communities of America, among others.
