The Mental Health Association of San Francisco (MHASF) is proud to announce
implementation of the Mental Health Peer Run Warm Line! Run and staffed
exclusively by individuals with lived experience of mental health conditions and
champions of recovery, the Warm Line provides live peer support via phone and

support the day to day operations of the Mental Health Peer-Run Warm Line with the
Mental Health Association of San Francisco (MHASF). The Peer-Run Warm Line is a
new multi-faceted peer support program in which trained peer staff provide live support

technology on a 24 hour/7 day a week basis (after full program implementation). Warm
Line Counselors will provide peer support over the phone and over an Internet chat
based service during regular four or eight hour shifts.

If you have submitted your application during a review period you will hear from the Program Manager after it has been reviewed via email or phone to set-up a phone interview. If you missed the review period your application will be saved in our database and will be reviewed once the hiring period/ job availability opens-up. The review and interview/hiring periods will be posted on our website. Please note that unexpected events can take place and review and interview/hiring periods are subject to change frequently
