Social Work Clinic
Do you care for someone with a chronic disease or illness?
If so, we'd encourage you to come along to our group sessions. The group sessions will run over 5 weeks and have a focus on those in caring roles.
The group sessions will provide an opportunity for carers to gain mutual support, and there will be guest speakers, group discussions and information sessions to help people with:
- caring for someone with a chronic illness
- coping with carer stress
- grief and loss and chronic illness
- effective communication
- gaining access to support services
- taking a break.
Social workers work in conjunction with general practitioners and non-government organisations alongside community and peer support workers. In specialist mental health settings social workers are generally members of multi-disciplinary teams (for example: child and adolescent, adult, health care of older people or other specialist mental health services). After a full mental health assessment has been completed, the social worker, as a case-manager, is primarily responsible for developing, implementing and documenting individual client treatment plans. Social Workers use a range of psychological interventions to work with clients with depression, anxiety, and personality disorders, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems, adjustment issues, trauma and family conflicts. This includes identifying impacts of mental illness on one’s routine life, working with individuals, families, groups and communities to empower consumers and family members, working cooperatively with psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses and therapists, conforming to regulations of professional practice.
