Hi! I am working with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker on having a virtual support group for the community. I am wondering if there are topics or questions you have that can be answered or supported by a social worker.
These forums deal with very rare diseases that even experienced medical professionals with years of practice have a hard time answering specifically. A social worker, licensed or not, would be unlikely to have reliable medical advice or provide worthwhile support.
Of course a social worker will not be able to provide medical advices because they are not trained as a medical professional. A social worker, however, can provide mental health support which can be often overlooked. Some examples can be like feelings of isolation, helplessness, hopelessness, powerlessness, feeling overwhelmed, anxious feeling, low moods, etc. which are all concerns that are worth to be to be heard, acknowledged, and processed.
