One of our main goals at Empire Mental Health Support is to have EMHS Care Meetings for Peer/Family Support in the ten largest cities in the state of South Dakota. They are:
- Sioux Falls
- Rapid City
To do this, we need volunteers willing to be trained and willing to be members of this wonderful organization. The first thing a willing member volunteer would need to do is become a member through our Membership Application. It’s only $5 and it covers an entire year. Next, a willing member volunteer would need to fill out and sign a Group Leader Application. Finally, a willing member volunteer would need to take the Group Leader Training.
To get the proper paperwork, please send an email to EmpireMHS@outlook.com. We will be able to send a copy of each that are printer-friendly.
The next step would be to set up a Zoom meeting, which can be found on our Meetings page, to be trained. We are looking at a January 2022 training date. Since we would do the Group Leader Training on Zoom, there would be no cost for travel, hotel, or food. The willing member volunteers would be able to do the Group Leader Training from home or office. We would be holding this on a Saturday afternoon, so no work would be missed either!
Please consider this volunteering opportunity before the year closes so we can reach out statewide with support meetings.

We hope to hear from you!
