Volunteer at AMI-Quebec

Please note: due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our office is physically closed. Although all our programs and services are available online and by phone, certain volunteering opportunities may not be available. 

Looking to volunteer? AMI-Québec is regularly looking for volunteers to help us with our programs and committees. There are various opportunities, and we’ll try to match you up with the one you like. Training and supervision are provided, and you are sure to join a dynamic team of individuals who gain from their volunteerism as much as they give. Please note that many of our volunteering opportunities require training and that these trainings only take place when we have positions available. It may take several months for us to get back to you.

Here is a sample of some possibilities:

  • Support group facilitators – family members and people with lived experience with mental illness who recognize the importance of their personal experience in helping others cope with their own situations. Experience in support groups as a participant is required and training is provided.

  • Speakers and Presenters – for our Education and Outreach program–speaking to schools and businesses about mental illness. You are provided with a presentation and training. If you have lived experience with mental illness in yourself or in a loved one, and are willing to speak about your experience, that’s even better! You must be comfortable with public speaking and have some knowledge of mental illness and mental health.

  • We are looking for a handyperson who can do minor repairs, change lightbulbs, deal with plumbing issues etc. on an on call basis.

  • We need someone who can write grant proposals (previous experience necessary). You must have excellent writing skills, and some knowledge of mental illness is an asset.

If you have a special interest but don’t feel it fits in with the described openings, don’t despair. Our immediate need is to ensure our ongoing programs, but you may have a new and brilliant idea that we would like to hear about. Please complete the form below and if you have any questions, please call us at 514-486-1448.

There are many other volunteer opportunities available –  just complete this form or call us!

PLEASE NOTE: the vast majority of our volunteering opportunities take place during the week, not on weekends.
