Jobs in the Mental Health profession?

Hello, I’m 18 and I live in the UK and for the last 6 months I’ve been thinking about working in the Mental Health field.
I was just hoping that someone could explain which Jobs are available and what I would need too do in order to do those jobs academically.
I’ve tried looking things up on the Internet and all it did was confuse me.
When reading up I did find something about psychiatric occupational therapy and that sounded like a Job I would love so if someone could explain that too it would be much appreciated.

    I’m doing the same thing! 🙂

    There is a lot of jobs you can do from being a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, councilor, mental health nurse. What are looking into?

    You need to go to college and take a course in either health and social, psychology, nursing something along those lines. Then look into going to university. At the university I am at the do psychology courses and mental health nursing courses. The mental health nursing course you do work placements at hospitals and work with mental ill people and work with them in their recovery and the psychology course basically trains you to become a psychologist. Staffordshire University has a very high rate of getting people jobs in the field they want, its an excellent university.

    Hope this helps a little.
