Mental Health America is seeking volunteers 18 or older to answer our 24/7 CRISISline. CRISISline is for those in our community struggling with the choices and demands of life who are in need of a listening ear. We are looking for caring, empathetic volunteers who have an interest in their community and compassion for people of all walks of life. CRISISline training will teach you how to provide support for those who are looking for compassion and assistance. You can become a part of the hope that is an anchor for so many, while gaining valuable skills and experience in the mental health field.

TEENline volunteers are also needed. This line provides peer support for teens who are in crisis. TEENline volunteers must be at least 16 years old. All volunteers must be mature, responsible and non-judgemental. The volunteer must be able to follow policies and excel in a team environment.

If interested, please contact volunteer@mhagc.org and give a phone number to contact you. Our upcoming training class will start on January 29, so sign up quickly! No prior experience necessary!
