National Council Community Behavioral Health, DC (Internship)- 53833
Internship/Externship Program
Interns gain substantive experience in state and federal policy on issues affecting adults and children with mental disabilities and organizations that provide community-based mental health and addictions treatment. Interns conduct varied research — eg. legislative, social science, regulatory — and produce fact sheets and policy papers.

Recent intern projects include facts sheets and issue briefs on a wide array of topics — continuity of healthcare benefits for justice-involved individuals with mental illness, impact of state budget cuts on the ability of providers to serve clients in their communities, mental health and substance use disorder preventive and diagnostic interventions in the primary care setting, and the impact of national healthcare reform legislation on mental health and addiction services.

Interns should have strong analytical, writing, research and computer skills, including the ability to effectively use the internet. Graduate students are preferred, but stellar undergraduates with a strong interest in mental health, addictions, healthcare, disability policy, and public education are also encouraged to apply. Interns may work for academic credit or a stipend of $12/hour, up to $2,500/semester. Spring internships typically start in late January and end in mid-May. Both part and full-time positions are available.
