Careers / Internships



At South Community Inc. we are committed to giving back to our community. One of the many ways we do this is by working in affiliation/partnership with several Colleges and Universities. We place approximately 40-50 Undergraduate and Graduate students, a year, as well as Medical Students, Residents and Fellows.

We have knowledgeable and well trained site supervisors and field placement instructors who truly care about the student they are training. South Community takes pride in giving our students the best possible experience and strives to educate students to be exceptional experts in the field of Mental Health.

This is a winning situation for everyone! Students are able to learn from a well versed/trained staff of professionals who are dedicated to giving the best treatment possible and educate beginning professionals.

Students are great support for staff and bring new ideas for training and treatment which ultimately benefits our most important focus, our consumers.

We offer placements for students in counseling, social work or related fields. If you are a student working toward an associate, bachelor, master or doctorate degree and would like further information, please contact Barbara Crabill, Program Manager of Student Placements at the following e-mail address:

There are so many wonderful things I can say about South Community! I have had the opportunity to grow in the company and have moved from an Outpatient Therapist, Team Lead, and now a Program Manager. I am never embarrassed or reluctant to say that I am employee at South Community but rather I am proud that I work at one of the BEST Behavioral Health Agencies in the State!
