Need Your Advice! Statement of Purpose and Overcoming Obstacles


Recommended Posts

Hi those who are applying for MSW programs,

I'm from Japan, and applying for msw programs for fall 2013.

I have a question about the satement of purpose.

For some schools, I have to write about the obstacles I had to overcome in my life.

For that part, I wrote about my experience of mental illness caused by the huge earhquake in Japan.

I recovered from the ilness because I went to the doctor and took some time off.

I am sure that this experience made me stronger, and it will help me to work with clients with mental disorder as a social worker.

On the other hand, reading some threads in the forum made me realize that I should avoid writing about my mental health....

Do you think I should choose something different?
