Dia Vickery, PhD (Theology), Licensed Acupuncturist is registered as a part of the growing number of alternative health care providers working with Give an Hour, the nonprofit organisation that provides free mental health services to U.S. military personnel and families affected by the current conflicts in Iran and Afghanastan.
Give an Hour™ is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), founded in September 2005 by Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, a psychologist in the Washington, D.C., area. The organization’s mission is to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society.
In addition to their main mission of providing free mental health services, Give an Hour also maintains a list of other health professionals who are volunteering their services. Dr. Vickery is pleased to be included in this group.
“Obviously, I’d be thrilled if there was no need for an organisation like Give an Hour, but the reality is we have servicemen and women coming home with a wide variety of health concerns. As soon as I heard about Give an Hour, I contacted them to see if they had a registry for non-mental health providers and I’m thrilled to say they do. I know the power of acupuncture and oriental medicine can reach many of the health concerns our vets are facing and I believe the services should be available to them.”
