Mental Health Field Internships

As a Mental Health and Human Services major, part of your degree coursework includes the fulfillment of 2 field internships, MH9801 and MH9802.

These fields are designed to give you direct experience in a variety of mental health care environments. When doing your field, you will be working in a real facility and with real people, much like you would as a mental health professional.
