As the world becomes more and more aware about the significance of mental health, the importance of mental health professionals is also being recognized. There are various kinds of mental health professionals, but here we talk about Psychologists in particular. A psychologist is someone who “evaluates and studies behaviour and mental processes.” This includes clinical, counselling, and educational psychologists. To become a psychologist one has to gain a doctoral, either PsyD or PHD, in their chosen field of psychology. There is a growing need for psychologists in the world given how more and more people concerned about mental health are coming forward. India itself is not far behind in this aspect.

Psychologists can be found within the country in most major cities and urban areas. If you’re looking to start a career in psychology, or specifically become a psychologist, there are a number of colleges and institutions that offer courses for the same. India has produced a lot of truly great mental health professionals.
