If you would like to get involved in the Canadian Mental Health Association, there are many ways you can contribute to your local branch. In this section you will find information about donating and volunteering.
Our volunteer program provides a unique opportunity for clients and the general public to enhance the services offered through CMHA. Volunteers are an integral part of CMHA and support the Branch in a variety of areas. Volunteer positions include Client and Family Advisory Council, Peer Support, Volunteer Driver, and Special Events.
- Volunteers are required to fill out an application, attend an interview, provide two references and complete an orientation package.
- A suitable placement will be determined by both the volunteer and the Volunteer Coordinator.
- Due to the high volume of applications that we received and limited number of volunteer positions, we are not able to place everyone who applies.
- Due to the complex application process, we ask volunteers to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4-6 months
To apply to be a general volunteer, please fill out the Volunteer Application Form here and email it to email@example.com or mail, fax, or deliver it to our Woodstock office:
