Online Resources for Social Workers and Mental Health Professionals

In an effort to continue to organize my social work tool kit, I made a list of websites that I have found valuable to me or have been recommended to me to visit.

But don’t forget to check other pages in this site for resource information like video lists and specific resources for various mental health concerns. Check the Resource tab or Video Lists tab.

Printables for Clients and Families/Parents

Managing Grief

  • Our House (www.ourhouse-grief.org) Our House offers resources like trainings, books, and free information regarding grief and how to handle grief (ie what to say to someone who is grieving). They also have a summer program in LA for minors going through the grieving process.
  • Good Grief (www.good-grief.org) Good grief offers resources like trainings, books, a Ted Talk, and free information regarding grief. It seems that Good Grief can also come to a school to educate on the grieving process (and facilitate a grief group).

Trauma and Abuse

Substance Use Education

Gang Involvement Resources

School Social Work

  • Erika’s Lighthouse (erikaslighthouse.org) Designed to help teach youth about depression, this website has many materials that can be downloaded and distributed (like the parent handbook on childhood and teen depression).

Health and Wellness

  • National Institutes of Health (NIH.gov) If you click Health Information > Community Resources, you can find wellness toolkits that talk about caring for your wellness (ie relationships, emotions) in English and Spanish.
