Prince Charles Hospital Mental Health Volunteers program

Mental healthThe Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) Mental Health Volunteers program has been running as part of the TPCH Mental Health program since 2005. Well over 130 people have participated in the program and given their time, to help support and give hope to people affected by mental health problems.

The program consists of a considered selection process, orientation course, ongoing education and support.

The program welcomes all applications. Our volunteers to date have consisted of people from all walks of life. All our applicants have a common purpose and that is to help those with mental health issues. Some examples of people who have been volunteers include:

  • people who have a lived experience wanting to give back for the help they received
  • professional students wishing to gain experience
  • carers, family members, people with an interest in mental health.

Volunteers visit usually once or twice a week for a few hours, helping around the facilities, listening and offering companionship and support to consumers of the service. The volunteer program runs to office hours, Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.
