Well, here are few to keep in mind. Hope this helps you in any way.

1. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer as a counsellor for phone lines and drop-in centres, although therapists and psychiatry require a lot of study and qualifications.
2. Social work may not be as glamorous as some careers and often social workers are depicted as the enemy. However, they play an incredibly important role in protecting at risk members of the community and it can be a hugely rewarding job.
3. Carers are the ones who actually experience the day-to-day lives of people struggling to lead a normal life, whether it’s due to illness, injury or age. They are the ones to help people to do the every day things we all take for granted like wash, go to the toilet and prepare a meal. A tough job, it takes a special kind of person to thrive as a carer.
4. Health workers include nurses, doctors and anyone else involved in the health industry, often the NHS. Long hours for little pay, unless you make it into a management role, people tend to get into these roles for philanthropic reasons although the career opportunities are excellent.
