Volunteer With WMMHC

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 

Missoula, MT

Are you or someone you know searching for a new challenge, or a way to contribute your time and skills while helping to support and build thriving communities?

Western Montana Mental Health Center is searching for empathetic, compassionate, and motivated volunteers for the greater Missoula area. WMMHC’s Suicide Prevention Lifeline is provided through a partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a nationwide network of call center providers.


Volunteer Lifeline Counselors receive inbound calls from individuals experiencing behavioral health crises and/or suicidality 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. LVC use their own previous behavioral health experience and education in conjunction with targeted training and professional support provided by WMMHC to effectively engage with callers, and establish a therapeutic alliance that empowers the caller to address crisis situations using their own strengths and supports. LVC also connect callers with established care teams when applicable to ensure a continuum of care that fosters long-term recovery. 


As a volunteer you will receive valuable training and a rewarding experience while supporting the mental health needs of our communities.
