NAMI Greenville is always looking for new people to join our team and help us build our organization! That is why we are currently partnering with different colleges in the upstate to try and develop an internship program! We are very flexible and can alter our program to fit your internship requirements. In the past, our interns or volunteers have worked with social media, community outreach, grant writing, and more. However, we are always happy to hear about additional skills you can bring to our organization. If you’re interested in learning more about internship opportunities, please complete the form below as well as submit your resume.
Meet our current intern Abby!
Hello! My name is Abigail Miller, and I am a rising junior at Furman University. I am a psychology major, and I have always been very passionate about mental health advocacy. There is so much stigma and lack of awareness about mental illness, and that often leads to individuals being unable to receive the help that they need. I wanted to find an internship that served as an outlet to do just that. This is why I was so drawn to NAMI and their mission; their goals of providing education, resources, and support for those struggling with mental illness have the ability to be life changing.
People who may not otherwise be able to receive the help they need can finally find healing with support groups, connections to treatment, and an overall better understanding of themselves. In just the last few weeks that I have been an intern here, I have been able to work with the most amazing individuals who clearly have a heart for those in need. I have no doubt that this internship will provide me with more than enough tools to continue my journey to becoming a psychologist and forwarding NAMI’s cause. I am so excited for the rest of my time working with this wonderful team and members of our Greenville community!
