Corewell Health recognizes social workers for National Social Work Month

Posted at 1:02 PM, Mar 09, 2023

Social Workers have a long history of making a difference in lives in many areas in and outside hospital settings. March is Social Worker Month, and Brandon Holmes, clinical behavioral health manager at Corewell Health, shares more about the work they do and the impact they make.

There are 200 social workers across the system at Corewell Health, filling many roles including:

  • Care for both adults and children
  • Make connections to resources in the community
  • Move to outside care
  • Screen to ID any mental health issues
  • Emotional support
  • Provide therapy – take most insurances

Corewell Health takes a strong interest in treating behavior health conditions, especially since there is a connection of physical and behavioral health conditions. Social workers help medical professionals make that connection.
