Hawai'i Psychology Internship Consortium

The WICHE Mental Health Program has recently written a successful application to receive funding through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Network Development Planning Grant, in order to develop a rural psychology internship consortium in Hawaii.

Development of the internship consortium will increase the number of professionals available to provide psychological services, thereby reducing the significant unmet behavioral health need in the state. It will also ensure that these psychologists receive training that is adequate and appropriate to meet the needs of the population of Hawaii given the State’s unique geographical and cultural factors.

WICHE will lead the development of this program and will ultimately seek accreditation by the American Psychological Association.
