ROCHESTER, Minn. – A local help line is in need of some help themselves.
“WarmLine” is available for people dealing with mental illness, and is answered by volunteers who have dealt with some of the same issues.
However, the Rochester location is a short staffed and is looking for more volunteers.
“At this point if someone is available on a weekend, we will take them for two hours on a weekend or for four hours on a weekend. We’d really like people to be able to do a four hour shift a couple of nights a week, that would be ideal, but we’re going to take anybody who wants to do it,” said WarmLine Coordinator, Carrie Clark.
The volunteers they are looking for are people who have a mental illness, but have been doing well for about a year.
“It’s a great opportunity for people with a mental illness that are doing well to help others that are not doing quite so well. It’s very rewarding,” Clark said.
If you would like to help out, you can call 507-287-1692 and ask for an application.
