NAMI Gulf Coast needs your help! Volunteers are needed to assist with the NAMI GC Information and Referral Line during office hours: Monday - Friday any time between 9am - 3pm.
answer incoming calls and direct them to the appropriate individual or department
give out general information about NAMI GC and its services
provide local referrals to callers and follow-up on referrals provided to previous callers
This is not a crisis hotline. It is a 'helpline' where people can call to talk to a friendly person who will listen to them, offer some encouragement, and help them identify some options.
No experience necessary! Training is provided. All you need are general phone skills, a listening and empathetic ear and a helpful spirit! That's it!
