For over 50 years the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work has worked to ensure fair and equal mental health treatment for all. We stand with all those facing discrimination and mistreatment for any reason, and acknowledge our responsibility to continue to fight for fair and equal mental health services for every individual.

Furthermore, we recognize the historical and structural inequalities inherent in our current world, and we renew our commitment to fight against the injustices that directly impact the mental health of all individuals, families and communities. 
The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
-- Jane Addams, Social Worker, Nobel Peace Prize Winner 1931
