The domain of social work in mental health is that of the social context and social consequence of mental illness. The purpose of practice is to restore individual, family, and community well-being, to promote the development of each individual's power and control over their lives, and to promote principles of social justice. Social work practice occurs at the interface between the individual and the environment: social work activity begins with the individual, and extends to the contexts of family, social networks, community, and the broader society.
