Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Good for you! There are lots of different areas you can be in with mental health. If you would like to be a psychiatrist you will need to attend medical school. Here is some great information on it http://www.psychiatry.com/student.php
You can also presue areas such as being a social worker or mental health therapist which will require a little less school but you will not be able to prescribe medications. If you become licensed in both of those areas which will requrie a masters degree then in most states you can open up your own private practice.
Let me know if I can help anymore or answer anymore questions!
