MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELORS (INTERNS)
The Mental Health Counselor Interns provide counseling services for students; Chabot's Mental Health Counseling Internship opportunity allows interns to gain pre-licensed clinical counseling hours. Generally the internship contract lasts for a school year and may be extended. In order to qualify for the internship opportunity, every intern must have a Masters degree in a counseling major; most times they are clinical psychology majors. The clinical supervised hours counseling with Chabot students are accepted by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences toward licensing requirements. Supervision is mandated and the supervisor must be a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. The number of interns available may vary depending on stipends and licensed clinician face-to-face supervision availability. Interns provide direct mental health counseling to students.
