SU Social Work Delegation Attends Advocacy Day
SALISBURY, MD---Nearly 100 students and faculty members from Salisbury University’s Social Work Department attended the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) – Maryland Chapter’s Student Advocacy Day in Annapolis in late February.
Comprising the largest school group, they brought a whole-hearted passion for helping others, said Eileen Gilheany, who teaches in the department.
Those in attendance heard parents and children talk about their struggles living with mental illness and/or substance abuse, and gained awareness about the consequences of cutting services to this underserved population.
