Social workers provide most of the country’s mental health services. According to government sources, 60% of mental health professionals are clinically trained social workers, compared to 10% of psychiatrists, 23% of psychologists and 5% of psychiatric nurses. Law enforcement, medical first-responder, and public safety professionals who join Barry University School of Social Work’s ranks have the opportunity to learn how to clinically treat many commonly associated problems such as PTSD, compassion fatigue, and burn out.
