Volunteer at the BNC

Our Mission

is to advance the health of the Douglas County community through comprehensive behavioral health services responsive to evolving needs and changing environments.

Every day, our incredible volunteers — community members just like you — help us fulfill our mission and make a difference in the lives of clients at the Bert Nash Center. Our volunteers help us to serve the whole person by creating care kits for our clients or help share about the work the center does through our Discover Bert Nash Tours. Volunteering with us is an enriching experience that allows us to respond to needs, restore lives, and build a healthy community into the future. 

Serve as a
BNC Ambassador

A Bert Nash Center Ambassador introduces people in the community to the Center. The qualifications are simple; you are passionate about our mission of responding to needs, restoring lives, and building a healthy community. 

Being an Ambassador is one of the easiest and most important ways you can serve the mission of the Bert Nash Center. Ambassadors host and filling a Discover Bert Nash tour with ten or more guests. Tours are offered in-person or virtually.

For more information about the Ambassador Program, please email our Community Engagement Coordinator Marlo Angell at

Due to privacy considerations and the sensitivity of our work, we have limited volunteer opportunities and Ambassadors do not interact directly with clients. 


Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and Youth MHFA training courses are offered by the Bert Nash Center. The courses are designed to give individuals the skills they need to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem.

Help us have as many people as possible in our community educated in mental health concerns and care, so we can all support one another. 

Nash Cares CareKits

To meet the everchanging needs of our community, the Bert Nash Center has implemented a program called our Nash Cares CareKit Program. This program will not only allow for us to meet the needs of our clients emotionally, but physically and financially to serve the ‘whole person.’ When someone is working to better their mental health, it can be a challenge to care for their physical needs. The Nash Cares CareKit Program is seeking group volunteers to collect supplies and assemble snack bags & hygiene kits for BNC clients to utilize.
