Key points: Psychologists can contribute to mental health through working with individuals, couples, families, communities and systems. They can work with people suffering from mental health conditions through to those people who are struggling with life dilemmas and challenges . Psychologists may work in hospitals, private practice, in business, schools or other organisations. This talk will give a range of examples of work undertaken in Britain and other countries.
