The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance is seeking help with answering and returning calls for our informational phone line. This opportunity includes helping the community find a support group in their area, directing them to educational information online, and offering other resource numbers to aid in the journey of education and wellness. Volunteer shifts occur Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM for about 3 - 4 hours a day and can be done remotely during COVID-19. Some fluency in Spanish is desired but not required. This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience in interacting with DBSA stakeholders. Volunteers also can gain valuable knowledge of the challenges of living with a mood disorder by speaking with callers from across the country.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
