Helping Others, No Matter the Situation

Every day, all across New Brunswick, Social Workers are hard at work protecting those in need and increasing the well-being of New Brunswickers. You’ll find these Social Workers in a variety of settings, ensuring New Brunswickers get to the root cause of their issues and helping them cope with and solve their problems. At the end of the day, social work is more than a job: It’s a way of helping others, often in the face of difficult and stressful situations.

What do Social Workers do, exactly? That’s a hard question to answer since they have a number of skillsets and work in a variety of contexts. But at the most basic level, Social Workers are regulated health professionals who respond to the needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities across New Brunswick. They look at how family, community, legal, social, spiritual, and economic influences impact well-being and work to address any barriers that may exist. At the end of the day, Social Workers identify people who need help and then work with those people to improve their situations.

Need Help?

If you’re seeking assistance, Social Workers are there to help. Please note that there are many other organizations in communities across New Brunswick that support people through the various challenges they may be experiencing. This is in no way a complete list but provides a starting point for where you may begin to find and access services.

In addition to the above service options, the NBASW has a Private Practice Directory, through which members of the public can find social workers who work in private practice settings across the province. This means they may offer a variety of services to clients, including individual or group counselling, crisis intervention, grief counselling, and much more. These services may also be covered by your health insurance or work EAP (Employee Assistance Program) program. Click the button below to access our directory.
