Example text

However, the creation of the Approved Social Worker role in the 1983 Mental Health Act provided renewed impetus to mental health social work. Approved Social Workers Approved Social Workers (ASWs) had extended powers and greater professional autonomy to exercise an independent opinion than duly authorised officers under the 1959 Mental Health Act (Cohen, 1990). Their role was to conduct a social assessment of the individual’s circumstances and investigate the possibility of using other services to avoid the need for a hospital admission.

Some young people may not want to access services because of the stigma associated with them, so social workers have an important role in working sensitively with them and their immediate social network to provide care, support and treatment.

As discussed above the practice of assertive outreach originates in good social work practice and social workers can advise on its sensitive implementation with this group of vulnerable people.

Rolph and colleagues’ (2003b) oral history of mental welfare officers included the following perspective of a trainee mental welfare officer in Birmingham in 1968: Work with mentally ill people was really a sectioning service … It was very strongly oriented in working mentally ill people towards compulsory admissions and there was little in the way of prevention, little in the way of after-care … the predominantly male MWOs saw their job as controlling and catching ‘mad’ people … they didn’t see their task as curative, rehabilitative or therapeutic care.
