Click here to volunteer for Maui Strong 24/7 Support for Helpers (Open to all, share widely. Used to match mental health needs with opportunities)
  • Signing up means you are volunteering your time to be available in a virtual Zoom “room” to provide mutual support for helpers (including therapists, first responders, and other volunteers and workers) who are on the ground in Maui, and/or other volunteers who are helping in various capacities across the state and the world.
  • There is no guarantee that individuals will drop in. Think of this as volunteering your time at a support table at a local community center. Sometimes all volunteers will provide support, sometimes they will chat with one another or do other tasks.
  • This is NOT a therapy space. We are not requesting your help to provide psychotherapy. Psychological First Aid is ok, as is connecting people with help, care, and other resources.
  • Because this room is staffed by volunteers, many of whom are not licensed mental health providers, please contact your liability insurance carrier BEFORE signing up if you are a licensed provider and have concerns about participating.
  • If this doesn’t sound like something you are interested in or able to do at this time, that is ok! We need volunteers in many ways and probably for weeks and months to come. Sign up on our Volunteer List if you’re interested in helping in other ways.

Once you have signed up, here is important information:

  • Zoom Meeting 88263804569 Password: 12345
  • 24/7 Support for Helpers (Direct link)
  • Guidelines for 24/7 Volunteers - access resources and guidelines for zoom volunteers to hold talk story space (non-clinical, not therapy, not mental health services)

  • Please submit volunteer feedback (after your shift) via this form.
