Volunteer

What do Mental Health America of Greenville County (MHAGC) volunteers and interns do?

Each day, their efforts help ring out hope and save lives across the state and country. Our dedicated and passionate volunteers can serve either in person at MHAGC facilities in Upstate South Carolina or remotely anywhere in the country from their homes, offices, and schools. Volunteers can use their commitment to fulfill school requirements for internships and field practicums and other obligations.

Volunteer and internship opportunities include 1) serving on the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline a and 2) assisting in other ways (help update our database of resources, with marketing/fund development, volunteer recruitment/education efforts, etc.) to strengthen and support the agency's dynamic and comprehensive operations.

MHAGC needs volunteers for the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, administrative support, marketing/development, supporting educational efforts, and more.
