Mental Health Association of Northwestern PA

My Internship at the Mental Health Association of NWPA was a time of growth and personal development

In the summer of 2015 I started my internship at the MHA. At the time I was a senior attending Liberty University Online. My internship was the last class that I needed to complete my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. This was a wonderful way to finish one’s schooling; and interning at the MHA made it all the more enjoyable.

My internship at the MHA of NWPA was a wonderful and delightful experience that helped me grow. Prior to my internship, I had no previous experience working with mental health consumers. During this time I learned a lot about mental health. One of great blessings that came forth was an appreciation for a population that often gets minimalized in society. I was able to develop an admiration for individuals who have a mental health diagnosis; for they are precious souls that need to be loved, heard, and helped. Through my internship my LORD fostered a deeper love for my neighbors; one that will perpetuate through all my future relationships. There is no measure, nor can one accurately quantify the personal growth that occurred during my time at the MHA.
