Hi, I have found a social worker in my area who I can talk to and I have lots of concerns and worries and it's mostly because of my parents and sister who get on my nerves a lot and I feel stressed out and steamed from all of them. I really want a direction to get rid of this issue and I thought I'd speak to a social worker, I want to know speaking to a social worker do you think I'm doing the right thing? What kind of help would they give? I never been to a social worker and it's my first time I want to know what would they do as a first visit? Please let me know soon.

Thank You,
Melissa

Hi Melissa6666,

What a social worker does each day depends on where he or she works and his or her level of education. The services they provide varies widely. Direct-service social workers generally help address everyday problems from finding work or applying for government aid, whereas clinicalsocial workers (licensed clinical social workers) generally help address mental health problems. Because their services are rather wide-ranging, they may be employed in a variety of settings including government agencies, nonprofits, schools, and hospitals.  Melissa, like I previously told you in your other ask.  Psychologist would be the best to talk to, if you are having problems at home.  But, since you have a social worker in your are, you might want to try making an appointment with them. 

Best,

Daisy
