Training HOTLINE Volunteers answer phone calls from people in the community who are experiencing personal distress, feeling alone, needing help, looking for resources, and needing a "listening ear." The training class teaches volunteers new 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.
There will be two class times for the training session. The morning class is from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and the evening class is from 7 pm to 10 pm. Both of these classes will start on Feb 6th and end on (or around) April 17th!
There is a one time training fee of $35 which includes a training book and other materials for the course.
