NCCMH Internship Program

North Country Community Mental Health works with interns at the Bachelor and Master levels to assist them with the completion of their educational requirements in the discipline of Behavioral Health.  We offer interns a program that includes a variety of opportunities with our wide spectrum of services within the behavioral health field.  Every internship is individualized based upon the interests of the student.

Interns will learn about the coordination of services, working with mental illness and intellectual or developmental disability populations, writing assessment and plans of service, and what they can expect to experience on a daily basis when employed within the behavioral health field.  Many of our interns are offered full time positions at the end of their internship, upon completion of their degrees.
