Volunteer Program

The Volunteer Services Program within the Department of Psychiatry is located at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Because NYSPI’s primary mission is psychiatric research, most volunteers are assigned to assist the Institute’s researchers. Tasks range from clerical and administrative responsibilities, including data management, to interacting with research participants, observing testing, and conducting interviews.
