Volunteer

Community Companions

The Mental Health Association of Morris County is looking for volunteers who are interested in spending one-to-one time cultivating a continuing and encouraging social relationship with a mental health consumer.  Through weekly visits with your companion, you will be a friend and support to an individual during their recovery from mental illness.

For more information about the Community Companions program, contact Al Shurdom, Coordinator of Self-Help, Advocacy, and Education at 973-334-3496 x108 or e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 

Mental Health Players

The Mental Health Players  are a group of volunteers who have an interest in acting and an interest in educating the community about mental illness.  Using role-play techniques, the Mental Health Players improvise any number of real-life situations: parent-child conflicts; how a family can better cope with outside stressors; alternatives to hospitalization; dealing with stress in the workplace, mental health wellness and recovery, mental health education and many more. The presentations involve the audience emotionally, causing them to become more aware of themselves and their own reactions in similar circumstances. 

The Mental Health Players perform frequently at civic organizations, schools, church and synagogue groups, and corporations to bring their unique form of interactive theater before the public.

To find out how you can volunteer as a Mental Health Player, please contact the Assistant Director, Self-Help, Advocacy, and Education at 973-334-3496 x112 or e-mail:   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
