    National Social Work Month - Elevating Awareness

    Throughout the month of March, the NASW will be presenting the Elevate Social Work Campaign. The NASW’s campaign purpose is to educate the public about social workers’ important contributions to the world, as well as the importance of the profession.

But social workers themselves often don’t get the support they need in their professional practice. For National Social Work Month, we’re looking at the most common challenges social workers face, and what you can do to advocate for improvements.
