Get Involved

As an awareness support network, we need to break the silence around suicide and mental health.

There are so many ways that you can get involved. Here are some. If you have an idea, get in touch with the team at Embrace.

Raise awareness

One thing that we can all do, is break the silence around depression and suicide. Start the conversation. Talk to those around you. If you know someone suffering, refer them to the site or the Embrace LifeLine. Or simply send in a message of support on https://www.embracelifeline.org/.

Become an Embrace LifeLine Operator

Embrace LifeLine continuously needs volunteers to serve as helpline operators. All individuals who are interested in volunteering to become helpline operators at the National Suicide Prevention Helpline are invited to sign up for “Active Listening Skills” and “Suicide Risk Assessment and Crisis Intervention” training workshop to enhance their knowledge and skills in active listening, suicide risk assessment, and crisis intervention.

Embrace welcomes applications from individuals with various backgrounds, but preference will be given to those with a background and experience in mental health. Individuals who are selected for the training will be asked to commit to serve as a volunteer helpline operator for a minimum of one year. Volunteering shifts span for 3.5 hours. Each volunteer covers two shifts per week.

How to apply: Please email a copy of your CV, a copy of your ID/Passport, a recent copy of your Civil Record (within the last 3 months) and a statement of motivation to embracelifeline@embracefund.org.

Applicants must be above the age of 21. All applications will be screened for eligibility criteria.
