Mental Health Caribbean has an interest in realizing internships for recruitment and selection of new employees who already have a certain familiarity with addict-care and psychiatry. We also consider it important to contribute to the learning process of future employees by sharing our knowledge and experience. For this reason, MHC has been recognized as a training company by the ROA CN (Education Labor Market Caribbean Netherlands Council). This means that our employees transfer knowledge and craftsmanship to students, so that they are trained for their future profession. We guide students in a responsible manner during their practical internship, help them develop competencies and familiarize them with the field.
Requests for internships can be sent to the general email address of MHC: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enclose a motivation letter and CV.
