    School Social Workers work at elementary, middle and high schools to administer professional mental health support to the student body. The School Social Worker’s role is to intervene when students are struggling and help them find healthy ways to succeed in school. They educate students on social and emotional concepts. They collaborate with Teachers to identify students that are struggling emotionally, socially or academically and identify the root cause of their issues. School Social Workers direct students and their families to sources of community support like free medical care or housing assistance to help students overcome obstacles.
