"There’s little doubt we live in stressful times. As a result, we frequently feel overwhelmed emotionally, mentally, and physically," Best Health Degrees editors explain; "Having a third party with whom we can discuss our issues and who can suggest prevention solutions, coping techniques, and skills can be an invaluable asset." As they go on to explain, "Obtaining a Master’s in Counseling with a Mental Health concentration can position you to help individuals, families, and groups work toward healthier lives." The editors state, "If you have a passion for helping people and have good listening skills, excellent communication abilities, along with strong people skills, you have the basic qualities needed to be a Mental Health or Rehabilitation Counselor. A graduate degree in the field will open several career options for you." They explain, "The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects careers for licensed counselors to grow 23 percent through 2024, much faster than average."
