Every month we will be interviewing and highlighting a different member of our crisis line team. Each conversation is with a real member of our staff and/or volunteer team. Today we want to highlight John who’s been with the California Youth Crisis Line for a year and a half. Here's an excerpt from their interview:
"I have three kids of my own. Of various ages, they’re all about mid to late teens now. Kids are really close to my heart, I love kids. In my volunteering, I worked with elementary to junior high students delivering social-emotional skill lessons, and through the course of that work I ended up getting mental health first aid responder trained and began to become more cognizant that not everyone’s experience is the same"
