This is a global organization of volunteer crisis counselors who assist individuals with mental health struggles, particularly depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and domestic abuse. The organization is currently in higher need of volunteers due to increased mental health concerns with COVID-19. This opportunity would involve volunteering on an individual basis. To get started, there is an application involving short essay questions, quiz questions, and at least 2 references. The training is 30 hours total which can either be done over 2 weeks or 6 weeks (all online, self-paced). Please note: they do have a minimum requirement of volunteering at least 4 hrs/week until you reach 200 hours total.
*All individuals welcome regardless of education level
