Social Work has been my profession for over two decades and I’m proud to be a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers. When I was in school at York University, I gravitated towards Social Work for it’s professional designation to address a range of issues. Coming from a background in Sociology and Family/Gender studies, Social Work presented an opportunity to use my understanding of social systems with psychotherapy to address challenges to mental health.
In anticipation of Social Work Week, I’d like to share this video. I encourage my readers to also share this video (via Twitter, Facebook, etc.) with the hashtag: #turnissuesintoanswers to help bring a greater understanding of Social Work as a profession for addressing mental health in Ontario.
