Student Placement

Student Placement

Notice: CASA Mental Health is at capacity for fall 2024 placements. CASA will begin accepting requests on or after Sept. 1, 2024 for winter 2025 placements. Although CASA aims to accommodate as many quality placements as possible, requests cannot be guaranteed and depend on preceptor availability.

CASA Mental Health aims to provide post-secondary students with meaningful, inclusive and hands-on learning opportunities within its many programs and departments. CASA offers student placements in both clinical and non-clinical areas. 

Clinical placements can include:

  • Clinical social work
  • Occupational therapy
  • Nursing
  • Counselling psychology
  • Child and adolescent psychiatry 
  • Medical office assistance
  • Child and youth care

Non-clinical placements can include:

  • Human resources
  • Business intelligence
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Marketing and communications

We encourage field placement coordinators to directly request placements on behalf of education institutions. If you are a student and do not have a field placement coordinator, please reach out directly to CASA’s Student Placement department.

Student placement requests should include the following information:

  • Name and description of the education program
  • Student’s resume
  • Approximate dates of placement and number of hours to be completed
