Success Stories

My experience in completing my practicum and internship at South Community has been invaluable. When I started in the youth partial hospitalization program, here at South Community, I was immediately immersed in direct client contact. I was given the opportunity to work with a supervisor and team that challenged me to be the best that I could be while providing support with any “bumps” I encountered along the way.

In completing my hours here, I found that I was able to get the full picture of services provided by South Community through leading individual and group therapy sessions, attending family sessions, and participating in appointments with the client’s psychiatrist. Overall I gained experience that has stayed with me as I have transitioned into a full-time position her at South Community.

Being an intern at South Community has prepared me in so many ways towards becoming successful and an integral part of the mental health field! I am so thankful and grateful for the skills, knowledge, valuable lessons, as well as opportunities that South Community has afforded me.

The entire team from Administration to Staff make you feel welcomed and appreciated! I especially love the continued emphasis of hope from the team members that you are instilling into clients day in and day out. Leaving my internship with South Community I am a better all-around person and feel prepared both personally as well as professionally to continue my journey as counselor/therapist!

I am a recent graduate of the Master’s in Social Work program at The Ohio State University. I was introduced to South Community in 2012 through an internship requirement for my Master’s program. As a student at South Community, I was able to work with providers in many different programs including outpatient therapy, supported employment and the treatment foster care program. However, I spent the majority of my placement as an intern therapist. As an intern therapist, I was given the opportunity to work with students and families through South Community’s school based program. While a part of this program, I completed Diagnostic Assessments, individual and group therapy, family sessions, coordination and linkages for community resources, and cooperation with school staff and teachers.

I gained experience counseling and advocating for families from many different backgrounds and family structures. I was able to continue developing and utilizing skills including helping clients and families adjust after trauma, loss and grief, substance use, behavior modification, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, CSB/custody issues, and other challenges.

I was supported by another South Community therapist in the school program as well as a great program director. I was very pleased with my internship experience. At the completion of my time as a student at South Community, I had a year left in my program at Ohio State. Throughout the remainder of my education program I continued to remember the professional development provided through my internship. The experiences gained from working with South Community’s caring, committed, and hard working employees stuck with me. Upon graduation, I applied for an adult/youth therapist position and was eager to return to this great agency. I was accepted and am now a full-time employee!

I have and continue to highly recommend South Community to students interested in learning, developing, and applying advanced skills in mental health and addiction treatment at an agency making strides to improve the quality of life for so many people.
