36 This theme came out of research with the general public who see social work as one of the essential helping professions. It's simple and clear, inviting the public to learn something new about the profession, specifically, how a social worker can help them. The theme also reinforces the point that social workers connect people to resources. It also invites people to start with a social worker when seeking help for a variety of issues. We ask you to use the theme and the logo beginning in March to help bring awareness to what the profession has to offer, and the campaign.
