"It’s really shown me how even those who are in the darkest of places can come so far away with those if someone is just there for them. That’s why I enjoy volunteering for the service, and will continue to do so."
Volunteers are needed to support callers Monday to Friday from 7pm until 11pm or weekends from noon until 8pm.
They will be required to complete a four-week training package and full reference and DBS checks will be made.
Lorraine Khalaf, Wellbeing and Mental Health Helpline manager at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Volunteers are a necessity, especially during busy weekend evening shifts.
"During these hours we receive a high volume of calls and it is important that we have volunteers to provide the listening ear and support our callers’ needs.
"By volunteering as with us, people are able to learn new skills, build on existing ones, meet new people and make a difference to so many lives in Lancashire."
