I am a 21 year old male who has decided to explore a career in counselling. I have read a few of the messages here and have noticed that a couple people have mentioned that many individuals enter into this career because of past experiences they have had themselves. I have been admitted to mental institutions myself for depression and expressed suicidal thoughts. I have finally gotten my life turned around and in order and have decided that I want to help others as I was helped. Could anyone give me any information on how to go about this?

You could start by doing voleunteer work for a suicide hot line, they usually have trainings on a quarterly basis, since that is where your recovery process started. There are several trade schools, or local colleges that will explain the educational requirements for your area, as well as what to expect in the profession.
