1. Clinical Social Worker

Social workers can find employment in a variety of settings, but clinical social workers find their home in hospitals, schools, and clinics, providing mental health services to patients. Clinical social workers aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders, as well as helping families and patients cope with chronic, acute, or terminal illnesses.

Clinical social workers typically need at least a bachelor’s degree, but many jobs require an advanced degree, such as Master’s in Social Work. Social workers must also have a state license, which is acquired through a minimum number of hours of supervised experience. There are also various certification courses to aid in career advancement.
