Careers in Mental Health

Mental health has always been a pretty challenging field. It is challenging because analyzing the mind is like trying to find a needle in haystack while blindfolded. People that have mental health problems are similarly tough to diagnose, because its very hard to determine what conditions are real or made up, long term or merely temporary. The only concrete aspect of a mental health problem is that is deeply affects both the patient and those that care deeply about him or her.

If you are interested in the many facets of mental health, or hope to help those with mental health problems, you should look into potential careers in mental health. There are many ways to work in the mental health field without spending years in school studying to become a psychiatrist or psychologist. You could get a job as a mental health technician that assists doctors in helping mental health patients. Mental health technicians are generally only required to earn associate degrees from a two-year community or vocational schools. If you're a scientist, you could become a lab technologist that runs tests on chemical imbalances in the brain. Your discoveries in the lab may do more to help a mental health patient than years of therapy. Lab technologists are generally required to hold Bachelor of Science degrees. There are also people that help prevent mental illness like school counselors and social workers. They can often find a problem within a person's environment that may lead to behavioral issues. Once that person's environment changes, their mental health improves.
