If you have a criminal history, we strongly encourage potential applicants to contact our program adviser Karen Green, 503-491-7133, Karen.Green@mhcc.edu for more information.
If you have had a prior DUI or MIP charges you will need to disclose all of those charges in writing prior to being placed in an internship.
In addition, many but not all of our internship sites require a DHS/ CPS background check. You will not be qualified to work with vulnerable populations if you have had any prior involvement with these state agencies.
Prior person to person assault charges will disqualify you from being placed within many of our agency partners and might ultimately prove to be a significant barrier to employment in the Mental Health field.
