Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Mental Health America. Our mission is to support the mental wellbeing of everyone, but we can’t do it alone! We need your help to raise awareness and fight in the open. 

We are currently only able to offer in-person volunteer opportunities in the Washington, D.C. metro area. These volunteer opportunities focus on event support, including our annual national conference and community outreach events. Additionally, volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate. If you are in the D.C. area and want to get involved, learn more by filling out the interest form below. Please note that due to COVID-19, in-person volunteering is limited

If you do not live in the Washington, D.C. metro area or if you want to  get involved in other ways, here are a few things you do to help

  1. Get connected to your local MHA affiliate: Our affiliates may have volunteer opportunities in your community. Use our “find an affiliate” tool to find the organization closest to you. 
  2. Share our screening tool: Our online, confidential mental health screenings provide valuable insight into one’s mental health. Share this resource, with your community to encourage others to prioritize their mental wellbeing.
