We are delighted to announce that existing volunteer Erica, has been chosen as our advocate for volunteering.
Erica joined as a telephone volunteer in January 2021 and continues to offer support in that way, as well as having an active role in supporting the team of volunteers.
“I’m passionate about mental health, both personally and professionally, and strongly believe in the power of talking.
I’m eager to contribute to eradicating the shame and stigma surrounding suicide, and feel strongly that support should be accessible to all, regardless of someone’s background or current situation.
I’m keen to encourage and raise awareness of good, positive mental health and well-being for both the service users and the amazing team of volunteers.
We can all face challenges and feel overwhelmed in this day and age, and I’m an avid supporter of reaching out and promoting the strength and positivity of asking for help.
The SOS family and their values are inspiring, and I’m committed to playing my part with this incredible charity.”
