    It is good to read that a LCSW with a Master's in Social Work is now authorized to be a MHP.

    When i went through the IDES, a LCSW w/Master's in Social Work was the very first one who evaluated me and his report was entered into my medical records. However, my CB-WTU refused treatment care for my MH issues as this CB-WTU civilian supposedly did not have the "proper" credentials to render such a diagnostic observation (not credible). This delayed my ability to seek and receive proper MH treatment/care by an entire year, and his "DSM-IV" was not taken into consideration by the IDES process, either.

    Hopefully, this change will now facilitate speedier recognition of SMs MH issues and get our SMs the MH care they need much more quickly - before it's too late. And also aid in documentation of MH issues in their charts/nursing notes for NARSUM/IDES process.

    V/r,
