"Thanks for the extensions.... Now on to the clinical preparation!"
Congratulations, Doris! And congratulations all recently licensed social workers.
The world needs you! Just a few of the many reasons why:
Growing Complexity of Social Issues: Society faces complex social issues that need sleeves-up attention, including income inequality, homelessness, substance abuse, mental health problems, domestic violence, and child welfare concerns. Social workers play a vital role in addressing these issues and providing support to individuals, families, and affected communities.
Aging Population: With advancements in healthcare, people are living longer. This has led to an increased demand for social workers specializing in gerontology and elderly care. Social workers help older adults access essential services, navigate healthcare systems, address social isolation, and ensure their overall well-being.
Mental Health Crisis: Mental health issues are steadily rising, and the demand for mental health services has grown significantly. Social workers are at the forefront of providing mental health support, counseling, and connecting individuals with appropriate resources and interventions.
