By joining the Legislative Lobby Days caucus you will have the opportunity to build strong relationships with other MSW students by working together to fundraise for the trip, and you will also have the opportunity to meet and network with other MSW students and professionals in Sacramento.

Being an MSW student can be a stressful, draining experience. In social work, our most utilized tool is our "self." In order to be effective practitioners, we must make time to rest and recharge this tool. Between balancing academics, fieldwork, and our personal lives, regularly practicing self-care is more important than ever! The Self-Care Caucus provides a fun, supportive environment for MSW students to address their mental, physical, and emotional needs. If you'd like to learn about events or suggest an event, please contact us at UCLASelfCareCaucus@gmail.com.
