Hello,
I will be now graduating from BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy. I am 25 yet I am a bit unsure what direction to go with my career.

I am wondering what would be the pros / cons if I decide to study psychology (not conversion). If it would be helpful and broaden my h options - for example could I still be OT but perhaps focus on mental health or choose something slighlty different in mental health but still use my occupational lense. Or would it not enable me things which masters in OT does?

To be honest I am not really sure what direction to go caareer-wise. I have plenty of interests and hobbies and am interested in everything. I would decide to go work abroad for a year and teach English, then maybe take an internship just so I get myself to know better and what I want. However, if I continue studying I might still get some financial help from my family which offers obviously much easier conditions for studying than if you have to have FT job and study...

Thank you for any advice!

It isn't clear to me what you mean by mental health.

If you include support worker in that you can get that with a couple of references and sign up with an agency.

Hi,
sorry I have not been really clear with that. Within OT it can be really anything but still OT. While outside OT I ment positions like psychological support, counselling, wellbeing practitioner , maybe play therapy,... I do not have a single idea about that.

Those are all very different areas. What did you mean by wellbeing practitioner? Wellbeing practitioner and various titles or Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner?
