The Mental Health credential is a highly valued acknowledgement of specialist social work skills and experience in Mental Health which is highly regarded by employers working in Mental Health.
The AASW also advocated for this accreditation to give social workers the ability to provide services under Medicare. As a result, mental health services and support provided by social workers is now more accessible to the community.
The process of assessing social workers for a mental health credential through the AASW is endorsed by the federal government. The credential enables the accredited social worker to apply to Medicare Australia to provide services if they choose.
