The RISE (Residential Interns Seeking Excellence) internship is a one year-long paid placement that provides recent college graduates the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the mental health field. RISE interns receive:
• Paid housing and utilities
• Medical benefits
• Hourly stipend
• Free meals
• Opportunities to explore projects of personal interest
Interns work as direct care staff in Eliada’s five different psychiatric residential treatment facilities (PRTFs). The PRTFs house approximately 6-9 students, ages, 6-17, who have received various mental health diagnoses. Eliada is unique in that our students are able to receive the highest level of residential care in a very non-institutionalized setting. Eliada is the only PRTF facility in Western North Carolina and the only free-standing PRTF in the state. Some examples of the diagnoses we see with our students include ADHD, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
