Mental health volunteering

After years of trying too understand what happened to me I started to study Psychology and mental health/ It really helped get my head around the situation and I went on to qualify as a Therapist and have continued with my education up to the present day.

So why not try volunteering in the mental health field?

Suited to compassionate people with good listening and communication skills, mental health volunteering can provide great experience for those looking to break into health or social care roles.

Both national and local mental health charities are always in need of volunteers. Positions can be found at:

Working with both children and adults you could man helplines, volunteer as an online counsellor, assist with local gardening or craft groups, provide a listening ear during drop-in talking sessions or become a peer mentor. You could also work in a charity shop or fundraise for mental health charities.
