Volunteer work that saves lives: Crisis Clinic needs help

November 26, 2012 at 11:59 am | In Health, How to help, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

We mention them in every WSBeat report, and every time our reporting touches on the issue of suicide. Today, we’ve received an announcement that Crisis Clinic – a life-saving resource for people all over the region – is looking for volunteer help:

Crisis Clinic has been helping individuals and families in need since 1964. From the beginning, volunteers have been the heart of our organization, providing caring and confidential support to callers on the 24-Hour Crisis Line.

Our programs have expanded greatly over the years, increasing our need for community volunteers. We now offer a variety of opportunities for both youth and adults, suited to meet each person’s interests and availability.

New volunteers are currently needed to:

· Answer calls on the 24-Hour Crisis Line or WA Recovery Help Line
· Respond online via Crisis Chat
· Mentor youth volunteers with Teen Link
· Make quality assurance calls for King County 2-1-1

We provide volunteers with professional training and supervision, ensuring they have the knowledge and skill to make a difference in the lives of our callers.

Applications are now being accepted for the next training session starting in January.

To learn more, please call Crisis Clinic at (206) 461-3210 ext. 697 or visit our Volunteer page online at:

  1. Wonderful! Thank you so much WSB for helping us get the word out that we are (always!) looking to connect with empathetic souls in our community who would like to become volunteers with Crisis Clinic. Helping answer the needs of our callers is an undertaking that we can’t possibly do without our many caring volunteers! (Letha Myers: Volunteer Coordinator for the 24 Hr Crisis Line)
