Careers in psychology and mental health

There are plenty of opportunities to make a real difference to people’s lives through psychology. Just consider our high speed, high stress modern lifestyles - and the fact that one in four of us will face mental health problems in our lifetime.

Mental health qualifications open the doors to careers in a variety of places. You could help sports teams to develop winning mindsets, work with addicts to overcome substance problems, or support patients with dementia. The uses of the human mind are nearly endless - as is the field of psychology.
