I mean, there's just so many different options in mental health. Doctors, nurses, hcas, OT, psychology, social workers, peer support education, advocacy, the list goes on!
I have always wanted to work in mental health in some way. I started uni to become a mental health nurse but unfortunately my mental health became too much for me to continue.
I've done HCA work which (from my experience) is often less about the emotional side and more about the practical care side. Of course you're still involved emotionally at some level though.
I've also done peer support which I absolutely adored but I was working with ladies with bpd and ed, which didn't feel triggering at the time but 6 months later my depression was back and well.... Here I am relapsing ha. So maybe it was too close to home.
Maybe you could try some volunteer work to test the waters? It's an incredibly interesting and rewarding career path, and you don't have to work with ed since there's so much range of mental health. Lived experience is also so valuable if you can manage to 'give back' in that way, and is becoming increasingly recognised by employers too.
