Social Work Services

Social workers help patients and their families cope with changes in health status, including hospital care, disability, and new medical needs.

At Kaiser Permanente clinics, social workers have a key role in supporting medical teams in delivering evidenced-based wellness and lifestyle management interventions. They provide psychosocial assessments, diagnosis of mental health conditions, brief interventions, and short-term counseling around substance-use disorders and behavioral health concerns (such as depression and anxiety).

Social workers are available at all 25 Kaiser Permanente's clinics. To ask about being put in touch with a social worker, contact a physician or staff member at your clinic or call the social work appointing line at 206-901-6030 to schedule a phone visit.
