Good goal, Ashley-Kate! It's always good when you can use your own experiences to help others. Keep up the positive thinking, hon. :)

Ashley,

What a worthwhile goal to work toward. Your personal experience will be a valuable asset in helping others facing similar challenges.

Having long term goals combined with a number of attainable short term goals is a wise strategy to develop and gives one a daily purpose. The long term goal helps form the short term goals so there becomes a roadmap to measure how it's going.

The important part of setting goals is to make them attainable, because otherwise you set yourself up for disappointment.

At what stage is your plan to become a social worker?

i want to work at the Douglas hospital in the day clinic for teens cause i was there for my treatment

Consider that the Douglas Hospital is just one mental health facility in Montreal and being a government employer, jobs may not necessarily be available. You may wish to broaden your scope to include a career at one of the many other mental health facilities in Montreal, or even the CLSC's which are on the front line of providing support to young people.

Another facility you may wish to explore, as I believe they also employ volunteer workers is the Head and Hands Clinic in N.D.G.

Head and Hands is a facility established to provide health and psychological support to young people and has a long standing excellent reputation.

Working at the Douglas Hospital could be a long term goal, because positions may not be available when you are ready, but you may consider various other options as short term goals in the meantime.

Do you think some of the other facilities might makes sense as options for your career goal?
