Social workers touch the lives of millions of people each day, helping people to overcome life’s hurdles and live to full potential. The Social Work profession is expected to grow faster than average over the next seven years, with more than 682,000 people expected to be employed as social workers by 2026.
Every March, we are all reminded to take some time to recognize the social workers who are dedicated to enhancing well-being and helping meet the basic needs of all people, especially those who are vulnerable, oppressed and living in poverty.
This year’s Social Work Month theme, “Elevate Social Work” expresses the need to recognize the contributions of the Social Workers to our society.
As we know our social workers encompass these different roles and more each day, MedOptions is proud to honor the dedicated professionals within our own ranks.
At MedOptions, our licensed clinical social workers have advanced degrees and training. They fight for client’s recovery by providing individual and group psychotherapy, guiding residents towards attainable and empowering treatment goals. They also work with facility staff to develop behavioral management plans, leading the way and demonstrating the difference that can be reached with determination and passion.
This month, during Social Work Month, social workers take over social media. You can help elevate social workers and the importance of social workers by sharing your stories across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Use the hashtags #ElevateSocialWork #SocialWorkMonth #SWMonth and #NASW so others can join the conversation.
