Generally a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Social Work and even Sociology. Some employers will even hire those with 1-2 years experience in the feild. But if you're going into the field for the money... U will be terribly disappointed unless u have an advanced degree or Doctorate degree.

I currently have an associates in Mental Health/Social Work, and pursing my bachelor's. I'm having a hard time finding a job. If anyone knows anything please respond!

I have a Master's in Psychology, and can't find a job. You MUST take a practicum if you want to gain the experience that is required along with the degree. You cannot count on the degree to get you a job.

As for working as a Psych Tech working with the criminally insane, good luck. Forensic hospitals usually hired doctoral graduates, psychiatric nurses. Psych Techs are orderlies, in a large sense. That's the impression I got from the want ads in California.

Hi, I am about to receive an associates degree in Mental Health, and then attend a University for my BSW and MSW in Social Work. I was wondering if anyone knew where I can apply for a job when I receive my associates degree in Mental Health?
