Mental health counseling vs. Social work
I’m currently a social work student working towards my BSW, but I’m considering alternatives to getting an MSW in grad school. I don’t really know much about mental health counseling or how it’s different from social work other than the longer grad school education part. Can someone explain to me the pros and cons of going into mental health counseling as opposed to sticking with social work?
Hii. I outlined some of the differences between grad programs on my blog here. Feel free to send me an ask if you have any specific questions I can help answer.
