MASHH Volunteer application
Read the intro by clicking here: Welcome and thank you for applying to volunteer with us. Herbal Wellness/Herbal First Aid is a place you love to be!
Because we are committed to providing the highest-quality care and resolve to Do No Harm, we've created a lengthy volunteer application but please do not be deterred. Although we need for most applicants to have applicants to have previous training or experience in herbal medicine to participate in our herbal first aid and wellness clinics, we welcome and honor many modalities and levels of experience and modalities. Community herbalists, bodyworkers and acupuncturists are welcome depending on the needs of the event. Our clinic model has a minimum of one lead herbalist per shift, a first aid practitioner who leads triage, another who could have lesser first aid clinic experience assisting, and other modalities as events permit. Herbalists who have lesser first aid and clinical experience may be assisting as long as we each practice a strict policy of ‘do no harm’ along with a philosophy of non-judgmental care: Stay within your skill level, stick to what you know, and if you don’t then ask questions, watch and listen. Working an herbal clinic provides a great opportunity to learn from each other, the plants and the people we serve. Harmony and flow in working together is just as important as experience.
