I know this forum isn't overly active, but I just wanted to say I'm starting my brand new career in psych!

I was hired for a job in an inpatient forensic psych hospital that specializes in rehabilitating people who are deemed incompetent to stand trial.

I'm excited and nervous and a little bit scared, but mostly happy that I found the courage to go where I wanted to be.

Wish me luck!
