Earning a master’s degree usually takes anywhere from one to three years. Students may enroll in a master’s program after completing a bachelor’s degree. Master’s programs build upon undergraduate education and give students access to more in-depth subject matter.

What is a Master in Mental Health? This program prepares students to act as counselors, therapists, and in many cases, social workers. Students take a wide variety of courses in psychology, biology, sociology, and cognitive therapy. Exams, lectures, and case studies help students hone their skills while gaining indispensible knowledge. Students are expected to become familiar with a wide range of mental illnesses and disorders, as well as the types of treatments used to manage and prevent them. Many schools require internships.

After earning a Master in Mental Health, students will be able to quickly identify and assess the psychological condition of individuals and groups. This is an extremely versatile degree, and students have the option of working in both clinical and academic settings.

The cost of earning a master’s degree is based on multiple factors. Geographic location, length of program, and institutional rates all impact educational costs. For more in-depth information, students should contact schools directly.

Students with this particular degree commonly provide mental health services in hospitals, clinics, and private practices. Many may work under the supervision of psychiatrists or more experienced practitioners. Others choose to work with government agencies and school systems. Workers in this field make a living by educating communities about mental and emotional health issues. Those who choose to practice independently may help clients manage severe mental illnesses, and make plans to achieve specific life goals. Some students choose to educate others in a collegiate environment.

There are a plethora of international mental health programs available to students. Many of these are offered online, while others take place in a traditional classroom setting. If you are interested in earning a degree, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
