What is an MSc in Mental Health? An MSc in Mental Health is a science degree that gives students the skills they need to work with people who have personal or medical issues related to their mental health. This challenging field of study teaches students about neuroscience, neuropsychology and the biological aspects of how the brain functions. Students will usually gain knowledge to work with mental health patients in a clinical setting. Skills gained will also typically include how to counsel individuals, couples and families who are in crisis.

Students may have several reasons for enrolling in a Master of Science in Mental Health program. Being able to help people in need may be a strong calling for students in this program. Steady employment, the potential to work in private practice and the strong salary potential are other good reasons to pursue it.

The cost of an MSc in Mental Health program varies from one university to the next. Costs involved may include tuition, lab fees and books, as well as room and board. For a detailed explanation of costs, check with the school of your choice.

Most careers in mental health involve counseling, either in private practice or in a hospital setting. Jobs in the field of mental health research are also available, and these are usually in an academic or government setting. Counselors can expect to work with patients who are suffering from addiction, abnormal behaviors and mental illness. Compassionate mental health practitioners can make a huge difference in the lives of needy populations.
