From March 1-7, CMHA Elgin Middlesex will recognize the valuable contributions and expertise of Ontario social workers, including the many social workers working at the Elgin-Middlesex branches. Social Work Week annually celebrates the profession and the valuable work of approximately 18,000 registered Ontario social workers. This week, we will celebrate alongside the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and our branch staff.
This year, the theme of Social Work Week is “You Are Not Alone. Social Workers: Real Experts for Real Life”. We take this theme to heart when we think about the incredible work and dedication our social workers deliver every day across Elgin Middlesex. We know real life has its ups and downs, and how social workers can help.
Social workers can help you get the most out of your relationships, work and community life. They help you to identify the source of stress or problems, strengthen coping skills and find effective solutions. Our social workers prioritize personal recovery, community integration and helping you discover a quality of life that allows you to feel satisfied.
Show your support by visiting the OASW website and learning how you can celebrate Social Work Week.
