Description

At Mental Health America of Hendricks County, our mission is to promote mental wellness and suicide prevention within the community. Through our social club, members actively engage in our facility and programs by volunteering, providing leadership, offering peer support, and fostering innovation. Additionally, we conduct suicide prevention training, promote responsible gun lock distribution, and provide information on suicide crisis lines such as 988. Lastly, we offer educational sessions on mental health and wellness, self-care practices, as well as discussions on mental illness and combating stigma.

At MHAHC, we take pride in considering our internships hands-on learning experiences. If you intern with us, you'll get a wide range of experience as well as access to staff members who can help coach you and teach you practical skills to supplement your education. A general interest in mental health is, of course, a plus in any of our positions.

Our internship opportunities are flexible to work with you. All interns are expected to work at least 20 hours per week, and to be available for 8 weeks (preferably consecutive) during the internship period. However, interns who work closer to a full-time work schedule typically gain more from their experience. We may adjust these requirements upon request to meet the needs of your stipend program. Opportunities are generally available year-round, but summer positions are the most popular and most competitive.

Please note that we do not provide clinical internships.
