"Getting involved is good for your mental health"

If you have IT skills and would like to work with us doing regular site updates

We will contact you by return, give you more information, and advise you what opportunities are available right now. Volunteers must be over 16, have an interest in mental health issues, be able to work from home with daily access to a compatible personal computer, and be able to provide references.

Jordan is one of our volunteers and has been with us since 2017 in a co-webmaster role.
"I, like many, have been affected by mental health issues throughout my life; not just myself but close family and friends. I feel volunteering and helping to build something that many people might turn to in times of need, is a way of me giving back to those that have helped me and my loved ones throughtout the years." - Jordan
If you would be interested in joining our Website Admin Team as a volunteer, get in touch for a chat and some information. We have opportunities arising on a pretty regular basisi and will try to match you with something you will enjoy as well as developing practical skills. Training and support are available but if you can use email and Microsoft WORD with confidence you will find it a smooth learning curve.
Certificates of appreciation - presented October 2017.
Two of our dedicated Website Team haved moved on to university and we would like to thank them for their valuable contribution in 2017 and wish them well in their chosen career journeys.
Nadia and Clara joined The Mental Health Forum as volunteers through the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and worked hard to build site resources and promote the work of the charity. When presented recently with their certificates, both girls spoke of the value of volunteering and how they would carry their interest in mental health issues with them into new roles.
