I started to volunteer with ImAlive a few months ago. I thought that I would just listen to some stories and give some advice and that would be the end of it. I was wrong. This organization offers so much more than just advice. ImAlive offers hope and understanding which can be hard to come by these days. The volunteers and supervisors are some of the most empathetic people I have had the pleasure of working with. I am thankful that ImAlive is a viable resource for people in crisis.

IMAlive is a great organization with volunteers who understand. This is a family of empaths who know what it's like to be depressed, suicidal, or live with chronic pain, and they know the struggles are real.
For me IMAlive is that beacon of light at the end of that dark tunnel that many have faced. We are here to let you know that you are not alone and that there is hope.

I first learned about IMAlive through Misha Collins from Supernatural in Feb 2016. I started doing some research and wanted to help. So i registered my interest in becoming a volunteer.
It took a few months but I am now certified. Since starting with IMAlive I've learnt so much and the people that do volunteering really care about those they speak to. People don't choose to give up their free time (free of charge) unless they genuinely care. These people are simply amazing and really enjoy helping others.
IMAlive helps people every single day. IMAlive will continue to do so.
Thankyou IMAlive, I have learnt so much already and can't wait to continue to grow with you all.
