Role of social workers in health and mental health settings frequently practice alongside professionals from other health disciplines. This enriches our work, which is informed by many models, frameworks and perspectives, drawn from across the social sciences, psychology and health disciplines. Social work has a unique contribution to make, which is to be recognized and celebrated. In some multi-disciplinary health and mental health settings it can be difficult to distinguish social work from occupational therapy or nursing, for example, where models and forms of practice are shared across professional boundaries.

This demonstrates the importance of social work perspectives and illustrates the extent to which other professions draw upon our knowledge. However, the unique contribution of social work to health and mental health can sometimes be lost. In Indonesia, role and contribution of social work in health and mental health still struggle to show the identity and existence.

This conference explores the potential for social work practitioners, researchers and educators, alongside service users and carers, to shape the future of health and mental health care. Working with health professionals, social workers can take a lead on promoting human rights and social perspectives. This conference recognizes and celebrates good practice in social work and contributes to discussions about new agendas for social work practice and research in health and mental health services.
