Mental Health Education Volunteer

We are in need of volunteers to provide mental health education sessions online. We are looking for about 4 volunteers, and spend several days (flexible schedule for the training) preparing/training the trainer to provide the sessions. The actual live sessions are scheduled by the organization we will be providing this education to.

You will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Teachers and veterans are welcome to join us for this opportunity to work towards helping educate about mental illness. Some Teaching experience is a must and mental health is a big plus..
