This role is one of the most intensely rewarding ways to contribute to your community while helping to erase the stigma around suicide and mental health. Many of our volunteers are pursuing careers in the mental health field or considering a career change before applying to graduate school, while others are looking for something meaningful to do in their spare time. Some have been touched by suicide, and others just want to help people in crisis. Must be age 18 or older and located in Los Angeles or surrounding counties (Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, or Ventura). Ability to attend the 6-week training and satisfy all training requirements. Ability to commit to one weekly 4-hour shift on the Crisis Line for 12 months Ability to travel to our Century City office location as required. Trainees who successfully pass all training requirements are asked to commit to one weekly 4-hour shift on the Crisis Line for a minimum of 12 months where they take either phone calls or chats/texts.
