Crisis line needs volunteers -- here's how to help
The Crisis Line of the Fox Valley, which is available 24/7, needs volunteers interested in answering the call for help.
A mandatory 10-week training class will be 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, starting March 10, at the AID Aurora Behavioral Health Services, 1230 N. Highland Ave. in Aurora.
This training prepares individuals to volunteer on the Crisis Line and focuses on issues pertinent to crisis calls, such as crisis intervention, mental illness, suicide, domestic violence and sexual assault, alcohol/drug use and community resources.
There is limited space available, so sign up at aidcares.org/volunteer before Feb. 18.
If you have questions, call Maureen Spradlin, AID volunteer and intern manager, at (630) 966-4020 or Cheryl Brown, crisis line manager, at (630) 966-4304.
