We offer many placement opportunities. Some opportunities are with our
Regional Clinics, which serve adults and youths within a geographic area. Other

and youth throughout the County. Each unit is described in more detail in this packet
of information. Besides the required supervision hours, trainees have weekly didactic
seminars and are included in clinical case consultations and in-service trainings.

Cultural Competency Stipends are available for those who are able to help
provide services to underserved populations within our system of Senior, Adult
and Youth Services. Each stipend is $5,000 for an intern or trainee who works 24
hours in their placement. Stipends will be pro-rated if the student works fewer hours.
 Please ask for a stipend application if you are interested.

Program Description:

Central County Mental Health Services is one of five regional clinics that provide outpatient treatment and
services to culturally diverse individuals with chronic or severe mental illness and many with histories of
trauma. Mental Health services include medication management, individual and group therapy, rehabilitation
and recovery services, crisis intervention, and clinical case management. Whenever appropriate, families and
clients’ support systems are involved in treatment. Treatment teams are multidisciplinary and include
psychiatrists, a psychologist, social workers, a marriage and family therapist, nurses, psychiatric residents and
interns. Interns are encouraged to collaborate with clinical teams. Interns play a significant role in conducting
much of the individual and group therapy at Central County, using brief, solution focused, cognitive
behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Because Co-Occurring Disorders are an expectation, not an exception, the delivery of services incorporates
Motivational Interviewing, and Stage-wise Case Management. Interns will also have the opportunity to co-
lead DBT skills groups and have individual DBT clients.

We are also looking for an MSW Administrative and Planning intern to join the multidisciplinary team of
providers and administrators. The intern would be expected to develop and implement 1-2 administrative
projects in collaboration with the Unit Chief and Quality Improvement Manager, that would support the
improved function and programming of Central County Adult Mental Health Services. Administrative intern
projects would be in the area of program or staff/provider development as well as program evaluation or
research. The focus may include: 1) integrated care with primary care, 2)program implementation of increased
access to cultural minorities 3)cultural competency or DBT program.

PLACEMENT OPENINGS:   Second year MSW Interns (or first year students
with prior experience).    20 hours a week. Must have drivers license
and be willing to travel to inpatient settings in the bay area.

LOCATION:      South County Mental Health, Redwood City, CA

PROGRAM   DESCRIPTION:      The  Conservatorship  Investigation   unit
investigates referrals for mental health conservatorships.        This
placement offers the opportunity to become acquainted with the system
of care that provides for clients with major psychiatric disorders.
Clients initially requiring inpatient psychiatric treatment will be
followed as they improve to various sub-acute treatment facilities and
community placements.    Social Workers in the unit investigate and
assess mental health clients who are deemed to be gravely disabled,
i.e. unable to provide for their own food, clothing and shelter, and
summarize their recommendation/assessment in a written report that is
submitted to the San Mateo County Superior Court and to other parties
associated with the client.
The investigation/assessment process includes interviewing the mental
health client, family members, significant others, and treatment
providers (social workers, psychiatrists), and reviewing medical
records. The investigation and written report must be completed in 30
days and it must indicate if a conservatorship is or is not
recommended. Social workers also attend hearings and are required to
work collaboratively with the client, family members, treatment staff
and attorneys.
The MSW Intern, under the supervision of a L.S.C.W., will learn to
effectively work with mentally ill adults, recommend appropriate
treatment and discharge planning, interview and assess client’s needs
and work collaboratively with treatment staff.

Second year MSW Interns who have experience or interest in working with adults who suffer from severe
mental illness should apply.

Student Internship with the Interface Team
Mental Health Interface therapists treat patients referred to the Interface Team by their Primary
Care doctor. The Interface team provides brief mental health treatment to patients treated at the
various county Primary Care clinics.

Treatment Solution Focused Model:
Mental health treatment through Primary Care with the Interface team is brief, one to eight sessions.
 Interns will learn about brief mental health treatment using a solution focus model of therapy.
Interns will have the opportunity to learn and practice this model. The textbook, "Interviewing for
Solutions", and a weekly study group support the model. Also Interns learn information and
referral, screening, linkage to other agency staff, and referral to the Mental Health Access Team,
which authorizes treatment for an individual with a Serious Mental Illness.

Primary Care Integration and Behavioral Health:
The Interface Team was formed in 1994 when the San Mateo County Health Agency realized that
the majority of antidepressant medications are prescribed by Primary Care Providers who lacked
training in recognizing mental illness.
According to the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, there have been ten years
of discussions, papers, conferences, pilots and a few well-financed models regarding Behavioral
Health (Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment)/Primary Care Integration. The recent
financing and development of behavioral health services in Community Health Centers is the latest
in a series of efforts to acknowledge that a large proportion of the population get their behavioral
health services in primary care.

San Mateo’s Interface Team has been well regarded and a model for integrating Behavioral Health
and Primary Care services. Most recently it was presented at the Annual Training Conference
sponsored by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare in Denver, March 2003.
