An occupational therapist is a person who help patients to identify imbalances in their lives & suggest activities to deal with them.But my dear friend,I cant understand that having such a quality you yourself are so much depressed that you need a counselling. Anyways ,the first thing is this that firstly remove this doubt that this course is prospectless & less paying in INDIA.Now note down the different fields in which you can work-
1.Hospitals, private clinics,health centres ,polyclinics
2. rehabilitation centres & psychiatric institutions
3. special schools
4. community mental health centres
5. residential care facilities
6. adult day care program and sports field
NGOs are also a good option for these professionals.You can work independently for providing health care facility to household & school.
You also get a very encouraging level of income-
1. Freshers- 8000-10,000 monthly
2. In pvt. sector- 15,000-25,000
3. Independenly- 20,000 to 1 lac per month
So you can see the career prospect is positive only.I personally request to the principal of Pt.DDU institute to arrange a counseller so that students will not mislead & try to remove the demoralising environmen talso for the better future of the students.

Yes its really tough establishing yourself in the profession. You can work in special schools as beginner. Also if your parents can supportt go for mot or msc in related field in US. If you have no other option except being in India then current trends will help you if you do BEd or PG inclinical psychology. Try doing part time or full time with gooduniversity. DU or Ignou. You might as well land working in international school. There start up is around 25 k per month. Be prepared for hard work and perseverence for atleast next 4 to 5 years.
