Volunteers Needed for COVID Cares Support Service

If you can give one hour a week—pick an hour during which you usually do paperwork—we are desperately seeking volunteers for this support line. Individuals connect to your number through a toll free number so your phone number never shows up. Calls are to provide support and active listening. While we are having mental health professionals provide the service, it is not therapy and there is only the briefest of documentation requirements. CMS recently came out and said that 40% of the population now reports experiencing anxiety and/or depression. We are expecting a tidal wave of need, especially for frontline workers and teachers to name just a few groups. While the line was initially just for health care personnel, we have expanded it to meet the needs of anyone who self identifies as needing support due to COVID. A reminder, as part of the COVID emergency, volunteers are exempt from liability claims. Please help out.
