I am so excited to start college. I mean, its a new start, a new life. Time to find some new friends with some great new ideas to slurge into my brain. I am so excited I can’t believe that I’m saying that about school but I am. My major is Mental Health/ Addiction Technician.This is what I would do probably.
A mental health technician is a person who has completed training, at minimum, to a certifiednursing assistant level. They work with people who are mentally ill, recovering from drug oralcohol addiction, have mental disorders like retardation, or are in crisis of other sorts. Techs work in a variety of venues that can include long-term care facilities, psychiatric hospitals,addiction treatment facilities, standard hospitals, nursing homes and possibly schools for people with mental retardation. They may also be called psychiatric techs, mental health aides, or psychiatric aides.
Generally, the mental health technician is part of a team that can include doctors, therapists, psychiatrists, and nurses. In many hospitals, techs often directly answer to nurses. They may also report to other members of the health care team, especially to allied health professionals like occupational or standard therapists.
