I am between the two. Identifying as a member of a vulnerable population, much of my personal and academic growth of overcoming social adversities is highly interconnected to social justice issues. I am passionate that health begins with identifying, addressing and assimilating problem-solving tactics years before the development of mental health issues. I am drawn to MSW programs for the ability of assimilating an holistic paradigm to disparities in mental health.
I am also very passionate about psychological health, emphasis on substance abuse & LGBTQ issues. the ability to provide assessment , conduct original research and teach are additions perks.
My long -term career goals involve working in a clinical setting working with a substance abuse populations, teaching and part-taking in research.
I am well aware of the differences in educational length, competitiveness, scope of practice, and long-term career ends. Reaching out to see if anybody else is in a similar predicament? and if so, what your decision processing looks like.
