Aplace where all your skills are put to use.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Trinidad West Indies – January 16, 2013
As the Outreach Assistant, I not only field calls from persons in personal, emotional distress, and on the verge of committing suicide, I also Train volunteer Listeners, and P.R for Lifeline. Co-host a morning programme on Wednesdays at 9am which deals with Suicide and Depression. Lifeline is guided by a Council of Management, but all the employees are a part of the decision making process. we are not just co-workers but more of a family, as we must support each other, especially when dealing with a difficult case. The hardest part of the job is having someone in distress who is at the highest risk of Suicide call, and after talking to them for maybe an hour or two, not knowing if they stepped away from the ledge, of not. The most enjoyable part of the job is having someone call and say 'thank you'.
helping persons in need.
