These 3 documents are part of the ‘Social Work for Better Mental Health’ initiative. They will help to improve social work across the mental health sector and to make sure the value of social work in improving mental wellbeing is recognised.

The documents include:

  • an overview of the strategy and importance of social work in mental health services
  • an assessment of social work in a mental health context
  • guidance about how to get and use feedback on mental health social work practice from service users, carers and family

These documents were developed by the mental health social work sector, following the publication of ‘The Role of the Social Worker in Adult Mental Health’ in 2014.
