The MDC provides both one and two semester placements of supervised training in direct school mental health services conducted by students from a variety of academic majors:

  • Mental Health Counseling

  • Child/Family Science
  • Social Work
  • Psychology

Primary work is conducted in surrounding counties with at-risk clients, from the kindergarten level through high school. Students are assigned clients for both individual and/or group treatment, attend weekly individual supervision, monthly group supervision and are responsible for all documentation required.

Mileage for travel to school districts is reimbursed, carpooling and full-day availability is required. Fees for Level II Background Check and fingerprinting are paid by the MDC.
