Certificate In Counselling Psychology
Mental health issues can severely curtail an individual’s ability to lead a fulfilling life. They can cloud relationships, family life and careers. Mental health conditions cut across economic, social and racial groups. Issues such as depression and anxiety can affect people of all ages, from children to the elderly.
Fueling the need for counselors are changes in the criminal justice system, which is moving away from jail time and toward counseling services. Schools and colleges are expanding their mental health services in response to issues of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, suicide and substance use among students.
If you’re interested in making a difference others’ lives, you are concerned for others’ wellbeing and you value relationships, a career in counseling might be a good fit for you.
