Why National Social Work Awareness Month is Important
Social workers are a vital part of our communities and social justice causes. They are on the community front lines serving children, families and individuals managing challenges impacting their lives. Social workers are all about implementing change and helping create a better society. The month of March is dedicated to raising awareness and bringing social workers into the forefront of our minds as their vital role in the community continues to grow as the world faces many crises, one being a growing need and focus on mental health.
