Celebrated each March, National Professional Social Work Month is an opportunity for social workers across the country to turn the spotlight on the profession and highlight the important contributions they make to society.
This year’s theme and logo were chosen to help raise awareness about the American social work profession’s 116-year commitment to improving social conditions and quality of life opportunities for everyone.
Social workers across the globe believe that all people have dignity and deserve respect. NASW’s goal for Social Work Month 2014 is to educate the public about how these values are essential to improving relationships within families, making social support systems more effective, and building stronger communities.
Working with adults, children, families and groups in Woodsfield is Joy Graham, PCC; Elizabeth Reed, MSW, LISW-S, is owner of Behavioral Health of Barnesville LLC; and Mandy McGlumphy MSW, LISW-S, is owner of Southeastern Ohio Counseling Center in Old Washington.
“Please vote yes for the Guernsey County Mental Health and Recovery Services Levy on May 6,” said McGlumphy.
