Concentration in Mental Health and Wellness for Psychology Majors

Woman smiling looking upPsychology undergraduate majors can now choose to focus their studies on learning more about how individual (race, age, disability, knowledge), social (peer groups), and environmental (community violence, worksite wellness programs) factors shape our mental health and well-being across the lifespan. Students who complete this concentration will build knowledge and skills that can help them improve their quality of life. This concentration will also prepare students for entry-level positions, such as mental health aides and caseworkers, or graduate work that will lead to careers in community and social service occupations, which includes marriage and family therapists and substance abuse, behavioral disorder and mental health counselors.

“The Wilmington University Psychology degree uses a strengths-based perspective and focuses on resilience and health holistically,” says Dr. Debra Berke, director of Psychology/Organizational Dynamics programs in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. “This new concentration is a great addition to the other options we offer students so we can best prepare them for work and life.”
