Volunteer roles at Mental Health Resource

Volunteers are at the heart of Mental Health Resource as without their time, energy and enthusiasm, we wouldn’t be offer such a great service. From assisting us with our social media accounts to supporting our community advocacy team, 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?

We are always in need of volunteers to support our work at Reachout YouthReachout, The Serenity Cafe or at 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.

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. Volunteers are at the heart of what we do and we will give you basic training to get your started. So if you are passionate about making a difference to those suffering with mental illness, get in touch!

Chris, diagnosed with bi-polar affective disorder at the age of 20, started attending the Hub’s creative writing group in 2008, which he soon started to help facilitate. Before long Chris realised that the Hub, “was a place that took a chance with me and allowed me to gently find my feet as a volunteer.”

His dream was to become an art therapist and with the Hub’s support, Chris qualified as a state registered Art Therapist in 2015.
