I am a great believer in volunteering from childhood. It makes life interesting, gives you something to do and learn but also gives us the wonderful opportunity to make a difference to someone’s life.
Wouldn’t you like to meet new people?
Help someone feel that they have someone to rely on and are not on their own.
It helps break down barriers around mental health which can often be good although when you mention the word mental everyone starts to assume you are talking about something bad – mental ill health.
Volunteering with BCMH will help develop your understanding.
After all we do all have mental health. No health without mental health.
