Volunteering at the MDABC


Volunteers are an essential part of the MDABC and they contribute in a variety of ways. We continue to strive to offer meaningful and productive opportunities to our volunteers. We will provide training and support to get you started, and once as we get to know you we will provide written and verbal references to future employers. When you are ready to apply please complete the volunteer application form (found on this page) indicating which volunteer position you are interested in. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our organization. We look forward to hearing from you.

Please note that you must be cleared to work with children and vulnerable adults. A criminal record check will also be done at MDABC’s expense. 



Peer Support Group Facilitators and Co-facilitators

The Mood Disorders Association of BC engages volunteer facilitators and co-facilitators for MDABC support groups. You will need to be an excellent listener and able to support people wherever they are in their recovery. Facilitator training will be provided either in the MDABC office or via Skype and you will receive a manual as well as good support in your role. If you are interested, have experienced a mental illness, have solid recovery under your belt and are able to commit to at least one year then please contact contact Darryl Lucas at  mdamgr@lookoutsociety.ca.
