Social Work Opens Doors

Every day, social workers help Ontarians open doors to greater mental wellbeing, safety and stability.

Our 2024 theme, #SocialWorkOpensDoors, speaks to the many ways that social workers help to create new and empowering pathways and opportunities for the people they support. From providing direct mental health services, to helping people navigate complex systems and challenges, and connecting people with the right supports, social workers make a difference when it's needed most.

This March, let’s celebrate the many ways that social workers open doors to health, mental health and wellness for people across Ontario.
