About

Training HOTLINE Volunteers answer phone calls from people in the community who are experiencing personal distress, feeling along, needing help, looking for resources, and needing a "listening ear." A 40 hour course for one week in the summer teaches volunteers skills which are helpful over the phone, via chat and text. Training topics include: Active Listening Skills, Addiction Awareness, Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Community Resources. HOTLINE Calls are free, confidential and anonymous. To register for HOTLINE training, go to www.contactofmercer.org or call 609-883-2880.

Classes are held for one week in the summer from June 26th to June 30th from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm.
