Volunteer through CoMHWA
Working to make a difference in our communities through volunteering can be a rich source of fulfillment and achievement as well as a great opportunity to build new friendships and connections.
That’s why CoMHWA promotes a range of volunteering and workforce opportunities to our members.

We advertise a wide variety of lived experience workforce (paid and volunteering) opportunities that arise in the WA mental health and drug and alcohol sector through our CoMHWA newsletters.

Specialist Lived Experience Register: If you feel you bring a lived experience that is often harder to hear, chances are there’s a service that is trying to find you to ensure people are heard! CoMHWA can work with you and services to match you up, so that you can be a champion for people with similar experiences. Examples include: alcohol and/or other drug, youth and seniors, GLBTI community members.
