Many employers prefer workers who have a high school education. However, it is usually not required. Many aides work first as a nursing assistant, and then receive additional on-the-job training helping patients with emotional problems.
Employers look for applicants who are patient, helpful, and dependable. Good communication skills and a desire to help people are also important.
Opportunities for advancement are limited. With additional training, aides can move into psychiatric technician positions. Experience as an aide can also help individuals decide whether to pursue a career in the health care field.
