Maryland Counselors for Social Justice (MCSJ)

We are a division of the Maryland Counseling Association (MCA), and a Branch of Counselors for Social Justice (CSJ).

Our Mission

Our mission is to work to promote social justice advocacy in our society, through confronting oppressive systems of power and privilege that manifest in a lack of equal access, benefits, resources, and opportunities to large segments of our population. We work to address mental health issues caused by social marginalization, and oppressive issues that affect professional counselors, students, and the clients we serve. Our goal is to work to assist in positive change in our community and society, and call attention to additional ways counselors could be better advocates in their work with diverse, marginalized, and disenfranchised clients, through professional development.
