The BHP Internship Program introduces students to the important role BHP plays in ensuring a productive life in the community for everyone. Interns gain practical experience through projects, special assignments, or research that support federal, state, and community-based programs, policies, and best practices in the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and mental illness.

The BHP Internship Program allows students to use their specific skills and knowledge while experiencing the value of their education. Intern positions at BHP are unpaid, offer flexible hours, give exposure to meaningful projects, gaining real-life exposure to areas aligned with your course of study.  If you are interested in seeing if you are a match for our internship program please follow the process below.
