When you access therapeutic mental health support through Hope and Healing Social Work and Counselling you will be met with kindness, compassion, respect and empathy. Along with this, you will be supported to find the answers and strength within yourself to develop the hope and healing you need to really live, rather than just exist.

So part of the holistic service that is provided here at Hope and Healing Social Work and Counsellng Service involves exploring with you any other supports and services you might find helpful on your journey and, if needed, helping you to make those connections.

What is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker?  

An Accredited Mental Health Social Worker is someone who has studied as a social worker and then specialised in the field mental health. In order to become accredited, a social worker needs to engage in two years full time equivalent post graduate work in a mental health setting whilst completing specific mental health training and clinical supervision.

Social workers then need to go through a strict application process with the Australian Association of Social Workers in order to obtain mental health accreditation. Accredited Mental Health Social Workers are recognised by the Federal Government as having specialist mental health expertise.

Accredited Mental Health Social Workers provide a unique approach to therapy though use of both their social work training and mental health training in order to engage a fully holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing.
