Youth Mental Health Academy

Opportunities for Professionals

Would you be interested in hosting and supervising YMHA students? Complete our interest form.

The Child Mind Institute’s Youth Mental Health Academy (YMHA) supports highly talented students from structurally marginalized communities by giving them paid internships in mental health-related workplaces.

The Youth Mental Health Academy is designed to cultivate the next generation of diverse mental health professionals, but we can’t do it alone. We need people like you — successful career professionals — to provide internships for students next summer.

We’re looking for opportunities for groups of five students to learn about the mental health field through direct work experiences in mental health-related research, practice, or communications organizations. Internships will run from 9am to 4pm, three days per week, over six weeks during the summer of 2024. Remote, in-person, and hybrid work settings are all suitable for this program. If taking on a group of five students doesn’t work for your organization but you’re interested in hosting internships for a smaller number of students, please indicate that in the questionnaire below.
