Occupational Therapy is a wonderful career choice for people who are good at using problem-solving skills to assist others who face loss of function due to physical or mental illness/disability.
I work in an inpatient adult psychiatric setting, and help acutely mentally ill people improve their daily living skills. It is often challenging, always rewarding. No two days are the same, even with the same patients and the same activities.
For mental health OT, it is important to work with a supportive team of nurses, social workers and psychitrists, as well as other therapy professionsls.
