BuddyHelp is the free mental health resource, that provides a safe space for people that just need someone to talk to. It is volunteer-led and remote-first. Our volunteer listeners work from anywhere, via their smartphones.
Emotional Support Listeners bring people who are going through moments of struggle to a grounded sense of calm and direction, through active listening, collaborative problem solving, and compassionate empathy.
This is a wonderful opportunity to gain excellent skills in active listening, crisis intervention, compassionate leadership, and collaborative problem solving, all from the comfort of your favorite sanctuary (fully remote, work from anywhere). These skills are helpful for your professional and personal relationships too. Many of our volunteers also highlight training and their volunteer experience on their resumes and Linkedin profiles.

There are many different reasons to volunteer at BuddyHelp. Read what our volunteers had to say about their motivation for joining:
"What motivated me to support BuddyHelp is my experience helping my classmates in my graduate program during the pandemic. I wanted to remind my peers to prioritize their mental health and show them how to cope with their anxiety. As a Mental Health First Aider, I was helping any students experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem by getting them connected with local providers. Providing my time to encourage students and guide them through their fears and confusion was a humbling experience. I want to continually improve the mental health and well-being of others during this crucial time in our lives."
"The global health pandemic is also taking a toll on us emotionally. I'd like to spread some empathy and provide a safe space for others during this time."
I'm at that place in my life where I have a desire help others and be a part of something bigger than myself.
