Give an Hour

Dr. Kukla is a Give an Hour provider.  She is donating one hour a week of free mental health and substance use disorder services to active and returning military, National Guard, veterans, and their families of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.  We are helping to provide military members with more options and availability for mental health care.  For more information about Give an Hour, please visit their website at:
