Advocating for inclusivity in mental health access

Social justice for counselors means working to ensure equitable access to services and advocating for marginalized populations. It requires the cultural competence to be able to recognize needs of people from diverse backgrounds and address the role of society in creating trauma. Counselors have the responsibility to advocate for practices and policies that reduce inequity and increase access to mental health care for all.
