See those inspiring and exciting We Are MFI "Personal Stories" on the RH side of our website? That project was created for MindFreedom in a summer internship by Oryx Cohen, who was then a grad student, and now is a national leader in our movement.
Other successful interns have: contributed research to our PsychFacts database, built up our amazing collection of recovery stories on the I GOT BETTER website, and more.
