Help needed urgently
- Family-to-Family teachers: We are looking for family members of people with mental illness who are interested in being trained to teach the Family-to-Family course. Family-to-Family will actually soon be delivered as an eight-week course (rather than 12), so the time commitment is less than in the past.
- Ending the Silence presenters: We are in need of young adult and lead presenters who love to present to middle and high school students. This position requires lived experience with mental illness either personally or within the immediate family; the ability to present slides, answer questions, and run general technology; and flexibility to present during school hours. Young adults (between the ages of 18-30) are also needed to share their story with the youth. Training is provided.
- Health/Wellness Fair coordinator: Programs and volunteer manager Lynn Shull is seeking a well-organized partner in coordinating health fairs and training volunteers to work the booths and schedule volunteers and locations. Computer skills a plus.
- Office volunteers – A few shifts are open and subs are needed.
