    volunteers make a difference!

    Volunteering is a great way to help others in need, make a community impact, meet caring people, and develop useful skills that will serve you throughout your professional and personal life. Our training program is based on mental health needs and effective practices as established by national accrediting organizations. Individuals who successfully complete the training program will have the necessary skills to provide compassionate help to anyone in need of emotional support.  

    MHA Crisis Specialists provide a vital service to our community.  If you are considering joining our dedicated team of volunteers, please apply via the "Volunteer Application" button at the bottom of the page. Our next training dates are listed below.  All sessions are virtual (except the graduation party which is held at Mental Health America - Wabash Valley Region).  

    Registration for our fall training is full. Check back later for upcoming winter training dates.
