Greater Lakes Mental Healthcare is proud to offer Masters level internship opportunities in our Adult as well as our Child & Family outpatient programs.  Interns carry a caseload, providing individual and family therapy, co-facilitation of group therapy, and collaboration with other professionals.

In both programs, the minimum expectation is a 9 month commitment, with a schedule that includes at least three days/20 hours a week.  While individual intern schedules vary, the minimum expectation per week is not negotiable.  Our interns must be enrolled at their universities for the entire length of the 9 month minimum commitment.  Many interns stay longer than 9 months in order to meet their university’s requirements.

We provide a well-rounded, clinically rich internship opportunity. If you are interested in applying for a Masters level internship at Greater Lakes, please send a cover letter and current resume to jobs@glmhc.org.
