Question by Scury: What type of jobs are there working with insane/mental patients?
I’m studying psychobiology in university right now and I think as a career I’d like to work with mental patients/insane patients at an institution (asylum or whatnot), you know, studying their behaviors, research about more about such mental illnesses like schizophrenia. What kinda jobs are there out like there that?

First of all, you might want to brush up on your vocabulary, so that you don’t offend any patients you might come into contact with. They are not insane, they are mentally ill. They do not stay in asylums, but psychiatric hospitals or mental health facilities. (god, are you seriously in college?) Once you learn how to speak like an adult and get a few sensitivity training classes under your belt, you might wish to apply for a job as a mental health aide, or psychiatric technician. But if you only wish to study them in them, find another way. These jobs require lots of empathy and compassion, and unselfish giving to a fellow human being.
