Kingsbrook Celebrates Social Work Month

Social workers stand up for millions of people every day. These include people who are experiencing devastating illnesses and mental health crises, our veterans, children, families and communities. Yet many people still misunderstand who social workers are and the invaluable contributions they bring to society.

This year Social Work Month is being celebrated with the “Social Workers Stand Up!” campaign. This campaign is designed to educate the public about the contributions of social workers and give social workers tools they can use to elevate the profession.

“Our Social workers stand up by comforting people who are experiencing devastating illnesses and mental health crises, ensuring they get the best care while on the road to recovery,” said Gail Holtz, Senior Director, Progression of Care. “KJMC’s Social workers work with our community agencies, care managers and with national, state and local government to obtain and provide optimal support services. Our team goes beyond Medical Case Management activities and stand up by protecting families and their children, while ensuring our patients reach their full health and personal potentials.”

We applaud all our social workers for their unwavering commitment and dedication to our patients and their families.
