Hi Abigail,

I love being a mental health counselor. The field continues to evolve so I'm constantly learning new things. Its rewarding to help people who tend to be in denial of his/her mental illness. Therefore, advocating and education are imperative with this population. Majority of indivuduals I work with or encountered suffer from dual diagnosis which mean substance abuse with mental illness. Are you interested in working with mentally ill people?
