Help Service Members by Becoming a Red Cross Mental Health Volunteer!

If you are a Clinically Licensed Behavioral Health Practitioner, we have an incredible volunteer opportunity and upcoming training that allows mental health professionals to make a difference in their military community!

The Red Cross teaches resiliency skills through three impactful programs-Coping with Deployments, Reconnection Workshops, and Mind-Body Workshops. The programs provide tools to address the challenges and stress of military life and reintegration with family and community.

All resiliency programs are confidential and led by licensed mental health professionals with additional Red Cross training.

Eligibility Requirement: Master’s level or higher mental health professional with independent, clinical and unencumbered license in one of the following disciplines: Psychiatry, Psychology, Social Work, Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, School Counseling/Psychology; Nursing (APN or CS in Mental Health area; RN’s who are board certified in Psy/MH).

Note: To be eligible, you must have an independent license and not be under clinical supervision.

The Red Cross leverages a network of more than 17,000 volunteers to deliver services at Red Cross offices in communities across the country and on more than 100 military installations around the world - including Djibouti, Romania, Poland, Iraq, Kuwait, and right in our backyards at Lemoore Naval Air Station, Camp Roberts, Vandenberg Air Force, and Naval Base Ventura County.
