“Mental Health Resource is an amazing charity and provides people in the community with much needed support and care, especially in the times we are in now. It was great to be able to volunteer to help create their outdoor space to be more welcoming and peaceful for those that need the charity's support.” Gemma Poole, Solicitor, Gallaghers.

Volunteer roles at Mental Health Resource

Volunteers are at the heart of Mental Health Resource. From assisting us with our social media accounts to supporting our community project teams, by becoming a trustee or delivering a wellbeing course - we’re very lucky to have many wonderful people volunteer their time and energy, helping us break down the stigma surrounding mental illness.

What can I do?

In the past, volunteers have supported our work in the office and within our projects including Reachout Youth, and The Hub.

You don't have to be a mental health expert to volunteer with us, just compassionate, committed, with an interest in mental health. 

In the past, volunteers have

  • assisted our wellbeing art tutors
  • delivered literacy and numeracy workshops
  • helped with cooking and preparing lunch at the Hub
  • taken student and councillor placement opportunities
  • delivered one off courses for clients like Puppet Making workhshops
  • supported some groups with various wellbeing activities such as screen printing or yoga/ mindfulness
  • developed our corporate partnerships programme
  • helped promote our services on our social media channels
  • run fundraising events 
  • joined us for volunteer days to clean spaces at our allotment or Hub building

I don't have much spare time - can I still volunteer?

Absolutely! Even if you have just one hour a month, there will always be a way in which you can help Mental Health Resource. 

If you are passionate about making a difference to those suffering with mental illness, get in touch!
