    What is a social worker? What do they do?

    My Grandad just told me to talk to my social worker about something, and he was really surprised when I said I didn't have one. I daren't ask him about them, even tho he probably will know something (he was a psychiatric nurse for ages before he retired), because I really don't want to admit how dumb I am. I guess if I knew what one was, I'd understand why my grandad expected m to have one.

    ok a social worker is someone there to help you with all the practical shit in life. Like getting your income support for one. Not sure if you qualify for one, are you having any treatment? if you are there are psychiatric social workers and you could ask your shrink to assign you one.

    I'm only seeing a councillor right now (my doc has decided to postpone any psychiatric stuff for some unknown reason), so I guess I won't.
