About Social Health Services

Social Health Services focuses on the skills and knowledge needed for occupations that support the everyday functioning of society, such as social services workers, counselors, and family mediators. In this program of study, students investigate human needs and their impact on lifespan development, an overview of the human and social services fields, communication skills, and the historical and social changes of the modern family. As students progress through the program of study, they will compile artifacts for a portfolio in preparation for future training at a postsecondary level. Source:[]
