Welcome to the Arlington County Mental Health Center Graduate Psychology Student Program’s new online resource center for masters and doctoral level students. The intern/extern program is part of the Arlington County Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Healthcare Division.
Due to the popularity of our student program we only accept students from American Psychological Association-accredited universities in the local Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland areas. Students start in the fall for the full academic year (September through May). We do not offer any positions starting in the winter or summer months.
Note: this program deals with Adults with Serious Mental Illness. For those interested in working with children and families, substance abuse, nursing or other disciplines, contact those departments directly.
