Thank you for your interest in volunteering!
CMHA Kootenays is a volunteer-driven organization that depends on volunteers like you to help us to develop our vision and provide services.
Studies show that regular volunteer activity can have a positive effect on mental and physical health. Volunteering with CMHA provides the opportunity to build skills, learn more about mental health and meet new people, while helping build a more caring community. Because of the benefits of volunteering, we especially encourage those personally affected by mental illness to volunteer.
We can use help in many different areas of interest and skill. Some of our volunteer-based programs include:
- Volunteer Assisted Shopping Program
- Senior Outreach Services
- Senior Telephone Check-In Service
- Volunteer Income Tax Preparation Service
- Crisis Line
Through our Volunteer Kootenays program, we connect volunteers with a variety of opportunities with organizations across the Kootenays, including CMHA.
