Master's level interns work alongside one of our clinical teams providing individual, group, and family therapy for a specific group of youth. It is a great opportunity to gain hands on experience and exposure to treatment planning and other aspects of a behavioral & mental health treatment program. For interns in Memphis, there is an affordable housing option available for interns from outside of the Memphis area. Housing is provided on-campus for interns working at our Deer Valley campus in Linden, TN.
