Mental Health, Law, Social Work digest
April 2017

Welcome to my Twitter social work / law digest

I have found Twitter a great source of information on issues relating to social care, mental health and related law. This is an attempt to bring together all the articles I have found informative and helpful. Below you will find my recommended best social work/care and related law articles for the last month. I spend a lot of time filtering Twitter's best sources of social work / law related news and comment, so you don't have to!

Simply click on an article's title to view it, or you can click on the Twitter user's name or image to see more of their tweets. You can also view previous months' digests, the upcoming articles, and search the article archive.

I'm always interested to improve this digest, so please send any feedback or requests to: simon@godefroy.co
