PSI Helpline Volunteer Application
Thank you for your interest in becoming a PSI Helpline Volunteer! Helpline Volunteers serve as the bridge between the families who need support during perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD) and Coordinators (Resources).

We have two teams for our English and Spanish Helpline that answer calls and texts from moms, dads, grandparents, and other helpers. Volunteers are responsible for one shift a week; on your shift you answer texts/calls during that shift. You provide a listening ear, reassurance, information, and have our PSI Coordinator contact them. PSI provides support, training, and facilitation for our volunteers.

The Helpline shifts are 3 hours long. During that shift we ask that you pick up calls/texts as they come in. We use an online application called Vonage Desktop where you would pick up calls/texts online. This application can be used on your smart phone also. We communicate through a google group and we share google docs where all of our instructions are kept.
You may be the first call or text that the caller makes, so the call/text will include listening, reassuring and providing information from our PSI website, which has PSI Coordinators in each state. Here is a link to see how they are listed http://www.postpartum.net/get-help/locations/united-states/

Once you have completed this application, PSI will contact you and then notify you about next steps. If you have any questions, please contact PSI's Administrator, Lianne Swanson psioffice@postpartum.net. We look forward to supporting you, in your desire to volunteer with the families we serve.

Thank you so much!
