Education is very important not only to mental professionals but all other professionals. Education is the key to becoming successful and gaining the skills needed to have a successful career. Although many talented and deserving students would like to further their studies, many are left out due to financial constraints. The cost of education is increasing and this is creating financial challenges for students especially those from humble backgrounds. Some students have been forced to work part-time to earn money for their studies while others have dropped out of school and given up on their dreams and goals.
