Our interns about us:

“''I spent eight weeks in PIN as a intern psychologist. By working in PIN I got a better insight in refugee scrisis, how it affects the individuals, state and the region. It also enabled me to see how the psychology is percieved and studied in diferent context and environment.''”

Jessi

“"Internship in PIN was an enourmosly prescious experience because I got an insight into mental health work in another country, and how it's managed in a different system. The chance to help PIN's psychologists in working with refugees in Belgrade and various camps provided me with another perspective in trauma matters. "”
