ORGANIZATION: Crisis Text Line

Image_201806261152

Crisis Text Line increases access to mental health services to people across the country. Our pledge is to provide free, 24/7 support in English and Spanish via text message and web chat. ¡Todo esto es posible gracias a voluntarios como tú!

The Spanish-speaking community needs us all, and they need us now. Data shows that the language barrier prevents many Spanish speakers in the U.S. from accessing mental health services and that this community is particularly vulnerable to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues.

Si lees y escribes español, ¡esta es una gran oportunidad de ayudar a quienes más lo necesitan, en su propio idioma!

Through our volunteer training, you’ll develop active listening and problem solving skills, and learn to leverage resources to help people in need while practicing safety planning strategies and cultural awareness.

Pro tip: you can also highlight your bilingual volunteer experience on your resume and LinkedIn profile.

¿Estás listo para impactar positivamente la vida de otra persona??

Crisis Text Line is an equal opportunity organization. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees and volunteer Crisis Counselors.
