Bring your interests, energy, knowledge, and passion to MHAG and be a part of an organization that is dedicated to helping individuals progress in their own recovery, as well as make personal growth. MHAG values and utilizes our volunteers’ personal strengths.

We are always accepting applicants for the Compeer Friends and Connections program:

Compeer Friends and Connections

Compeer, our flagship volunteer program, is a nationally-recognized community-based mental health program that uses the power of volunteer friends and mentors to improve the lives of adults who are striving for good mental health. In Compeer Friends and Connections, volunteers are matched in a one-to-one supportive relationship with individuals who are in recovery with a mental health diagnosis, and commit to spending one hour a week communicating on the phone or engaging in mutual enjoyable activities. Visit our Compeer page to learn more about this program.
