The Behavioral Health Support Intern will support, teach and enhance client skills through person-centered rehabilitative programs with a primary focus on trauma-informed care
The Behavioral Health Support Intern is responsible for transportation and skill development one-to-one or in small groups to provide peer interaction, emotional regulation, and daily living skills to youth and adults with mental health diagnoses. All interns are expected to adopt an outside the box, creative, playful mindset to instill and develop personal, interpersonal, and technical skills for each individual by utilizing each consumer's unique skills, interests and talents. This could include: cooking, gardening, music, exercise, carpentry, community outreach, and arts. These services are offered to consumers seven days a week and can take place during the day or in the early evenings. Interns may also be present at team meetings where the treatment team is updated on progress in session with The Farm.
Interns may be asked to support the behavioral health outpatient program. This could include: client intake screening, insurance/billing communications, shadowing counseling sessions, and joining therapy meetings
Other Intern opportunities include: Community food and hygiene pantry operations, Community Clothing Closet, Community Meetings, and local community resource drives. Weekly supervision is provided by Licensed Professional Counselors and/or Licensed Clinical Social Workers. We have two locations: a farm in rural Manitowoc County and a renovated church in Sheboygan Falls. We also provide services at satellite locations at participating partner organizations in Green Bay, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan.
