JFS established the Behavioral Health Intern Training Center to offer counseling services at reduced rates to area residents of all faiths, while training Masters-level social work and counseling students. Graduate student interns receive training and learn about various JFS programs, while serving a wide range of individuals and families. Counseling services are available on a sliding-fee scale based on household income. The Center fosters the growth and education of Louisiana’s future mental health professionals.
“This place is like no other. I finally feel like I’ve found a site with people who help me advance as a professional.” Former JFS Intern.
