Dr. Ray’s Answer
I sympathize with your dilemma. Having broad interests can feel like a curse when you have to narrow your choices. however it also means that you would probably enjoy a variety of different types of work. I personally don't believe there is just one job or field for every person.
If you are truly interested in the mental health field, psychiatry some drawbacks as a field. Psychiatrists spend four years in medical school and a one year internship studying physical illnesses and treatments. This can be really interesting but has very little to do with mental health and illness. Additionally, psychiatrists today prescribe medication and do not do any "talk therapy," which is now the domain of psychologists, social workers and counselors. While this is very important work it means that psychiatrists spend very little time getting to know their patients and interacting with them.
I considered and rejected medical school and became a clinical psychologist instead. I did "talk therapy" and evaluations for 40 plus years and never regretted this decision. Obviously if you have interests in other fields of physical medicine your decision might be different.
I hope this is of some help to you. I wish you the best in your career pursuits.
