March is National Social Work Month 2017
Social workers’ greatest strength and greatest responsibility is the Power to Empower: from helping communities organize and move through change, to planning and delivering social programs, as well as responding to crisis on the front lines, social workers promote mental health, support families, and engage with communities for a better Canada. Celebrated each year in March, this year’s National Social Work Month comes at a time marked by change and uncertainty.
