March 2022 – The Right Time to Celebrate Social Work Professionals

National Social Work Month is celebrated each March to place an emphasis on the outstanding profession. This March, the official theme is “The Time is Right for Social Work”. Social workers are considered to be the “unsung heroes” of our world – especially when it comes to senior care. This year’s proclamation informs us that now is the time to celebrate these amazing professionals as their time is right and heavily required in our world of increasingly high populations of aging adults. As we inch nearer to this celebration, we encourage everyone to celebrate the amazing contributions that social workers provide to our society – as a whole.

Among their many roles, they work with seniors and families to identify mental, emotional, social needs, and aid in the access of services to meet those needs.

National Social Work MonthThe Background of 2022’s Theme

Social Worker’s Month 2022 theme is “The Time is Right for Social Work”. This theme was created to highlight all of the amazing contributions that social workers have provided to our country for over 100 years. It underscores the fact that these services are in much higher demand than ever before being that our country is currently experiencing continued COVID-19 outbreaks, economic inequality, a need for improved mental health care, a new and improved healthcare system, and systemic-based racism.

Social workers are the professionals who have truly enriched our society for more than a century and we will continue to require their expertise for many, many years to come! In fact, our world could not function appropriately without the assistance of these professionals.

The Goal

Social Work Month is a time when we all come together to campaign to the public, lawmakers, legislators, and others about all of the services that social workers provide to our nation. This is one of the single fastest-growing professions, with 720,000 individuals currently working in the capacity. By the year 2030, it is estimated that there will be well over 800,000 social workers serving our country. These professionals drive positive change. They significantly impact the lives of millions of people on a daily basis. Now is our time to thank these professionals for their efforts, their assistance, and the impact that they have on each and every single one of us.

True Empowerment

Each day, the social workers who work in our nation help to truly empower millions upon millions of people within the United States. They do this so that those whom they assist are capable of living life to their absolute fullest potential. These professionals work in our communities, our hospitals, and even in politics to ensure that the living conditions that we all experience are improved and the best that they can be!

During Social Worker’s Month this March, take the time to learn about the profession. If you know any social workers in your community or in your life, thank them for their service. Strive to raise awareness and to offer your full support to the profession. In doing so, you will play a role in generating enthusiasm about the overall betterment of our world.
