I am a university student dealing with a General Anxiety Disorder and Major Depression. I have had to take a reduced course load this semester in order to take care of my mental health. I am worried about oversleeping or having panic attacks at work once I graduate and start an entry-level job.
What are some ways that people have found helpful for dealing with mental illness in the professional world?
I'm a high school student concerned about how my mental health issues (multiple anxiety disorders) may impact my professional career in the future. I'd love to hear from people who have had experience with this issue.

I belive it would beneficial for people to spend more time considering the roots of why they have the thoughts and opinions that they hav

I love Psychology and it's always been my dream to go into psychiatry due to the lack of doctors in the mental health field. But I'm curious about the various types of psychiatrists and what their day is filled with.

Junior year is fast approaching, and I've been having trouble with sleep. Not getting to sleep, no, but waking up. During the school year in particular, if I am tired I will drop dead asleep.

What is the most benificial college for a psychology degree? Also, what degree is the most benificial?
I'm trying to choose a degree in psychology. I am not sure if it would be better to get a higher degree and do more schooling or just an average degree with less schoolling. Also, I am not sure what college would be the best for this degree. I've heard a lot of good news with Wisconsin and Illinios

I'm asking because I plan on studying psychology and I don't really know what there is in the field besides becoming a therapist and counselor. There's got to be many more careers to branch off into if I study psychology.
