Psychology is both an applied and academic field that studies the human mind and behavior. Research in psychology seeks to understand and explain how we think, act and feel. A large part of psychology is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues. But in addition to mental health, psychology can be applied to a variety of issues that impact health and daily life including performance enhancement, self-help, ergonomics, motivation, productivity, and much more. The ultimate aim of studying psychology is to benefit society as a whole.
