MENTAL HEALTH & WELLNESS INTERNSHIPS
This Internship program for second year students in Psychology, Counseling, or Social Work provides the intern with a thorough knowledge of how to work with and use the DSM-V, how community mental health agencies work and how to work in them and exposure to experts and mentors in all areas of mental health. Individual and/or group supervision is conducted weekly along with weekly case consultation with the Mental Health & Wellness staff. The purpose of the internship program is to provide graduate students a well supervised clinical experience within a safety net community mental health agency
The Department of Mental Health & Wellness only provides Internship experiences for master and doctoral level students. We do not have placement opportunities for undergraduate students. Students interested in internships should contact the clinical coordinator several months prior to their anticipated start date.
Graduate level internships require a minimum placement of two semesters. Attendance is required 1) Friday mornings during placements and 2) during winter break for continuity of care with clients, as agreed upon with Field Instructor. Other hours of placement can be negotiated around class and/or work schedule when possible.
Interns are expected to 1) maintain a caseload of 5-15 clients (depending on hours worked/week), 2) co-facilitate one or more groups, 3) complete intakes as needed, and 4) demonstrate a willingness to “roll up their sleeves” with the rest of the team to provide quality mental health services to our clients.
Interns are expected to have excellent people skills, flexibility, ability to be an engaged member of a multi-disciplinary team, and an ability to work with a diverse client population and staff. We are seeking interns who have an eagerness to learn and who are self-starters who can work independently and seek supervision as needed. Requires experience with Microsoft Office and appropriate documentation.
Those interested in internships with Mental Health & Wellness Department as described above should contact the Director of Mental Health & Wellness Dr. Muriel Azria Evans, PhD by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
