  • Social work
  • Activism
  • Technology
  • Health
  • Non-profit management

If you are selected to intern with us, we will create an individualized job description that satisfies your unique interests and academic requirements.

MFI internships lead to success

See those inspiring We Are MFI personal stories on the RH side of our website? That project was created for us during a summer internship by Oryx Cohen, who was then a grad student and is now a national leader in our movement.

Other successful interns have contributed research to our PsychFacts database, built up our collection of recovery stories, and more.

Just imagine what you could do as the next MFI intern!
