World Mental Health Day – Psychology Scholarship Opportunities!

World Mental Health Day is observed annually on October 10. This is a day for mental health education and awareness.  Knowing what to say or what not to say to someone can go a long way toward helping to ensure their mental health.

It was first observed in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in many countries.

Let’s look at Psychology Scholarship opportunities!

Psychology is the study of the thought processes and behavior of humans and other animals. The ideal degree candidate for this major should have strong skills in the categories of writing, critical thinking, math, and science. You’ll also need good people skills and a healthy slice of empathy.

The exact nature of your undergraduate psychology degree program will depend largely on the area of the science you decide to choose for your concentration. Examples of these concentrations include child psychology, clinical psychology and social psychology. You’ll receive introductory training and instruction in each of the mentioned areas (and others). But the advanced courses you take in your 3rd and 4th years will center around your chosen concentration.
