Do you have any advice for someone entering the mental health industry as an undergraduate?
Hello there. I am looking to enter into the mental health field and was looking for any advice or shared experiences you might have. I am currently trying to receive my A.A. and then transfer to my desired university for Psychology. #mental-health #mental-health-counseling

Laura R recommends the following next steps:
The field of mental health is quite broad and you can choose any of the different mental health careers (Clinical or Counseling Psychologist, Marriage and Family Therapist, Clinical Social Worker, Psychiatric Registered Nurse, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatrist, Mental Health Counselor, etc) depending on your area of interest, which will become clearer and more convincing to you as you learn more about mental health.
All the best.
