E-social work courses help practitioners meet client needs during COVID-19 pandemic
While hospitals are the front line of the COVID-19 battle, every facet of health care is affected, including mental and behavioral health services.
In Indiana, where access to counseling and mental health care is already a concern, the virus has forced social workers to shift services from in-person to virtual – with many making the transition for the very first time.
