Mental Health Crisis Text line
This is an ongoing role that allows you to make a difference and support those in need of help at moments of mental health crisis. Totally on-line, it requires no travel whatsoever; you need a PC/Lap-top with a secure and reliable internet connection and a quiet place away from distractions. After passing 25 hours of on-line interactive training, you will schedule shifts of normally two hours per week minimum at a time that fits in with your busy life. As a Crisis Volunteer for Shout, the UK's first 24/7 crisis text line, you will be holding a text conversation with those in need of support. In turn you will have a network of support with a coach who will help you along the way,- through training and beyond- qualified clinical supervisors on the Shout platform who will help steer and encourage you in the moment and a fabulous community of fellow volunteers where you will share thoughts, ideas and issues. We ask for a 200 hour overall commitment. #MAKE A DIFFERENCE
2-4 hours per week and an overall 200 hours over time.
