I want to start volunteering for a crisis hotline, unfortunately the one hotline by my school is not accepting volunteers at this time. I'm interested in some exposure to mental health, so I was debating volunteering for the crisis textline: http://www.crisistextline.org/ The volunteering would consist of me responding to people through text and videochat. As such, it doesn't require me to go to a specific location, I would volunteer from my home. Would adcoms dislike the idea of volunteering from your home, and "online volunteering"? Also, what are your opinions on volunteering for a crisis hotline being a topic to write about for the diversity essay? Edit: This would not be a standalone volunteer activity. I have two ongoing clinical volunteer activities, and a couple other nonclinical volunteer activities. I primarily want to do this to the mental health exposure, and so I can talk about something extra for the diversity essay and several of the AAMC competencies.
