Mental health professionals are held to a high standard of advocating for their clients and communities, and possess unique skills that can be used for good. Yet, many practitioners and academicians don't know where to begin if they want to do something more than donating to charity and helping out with random community activities. This book will meet that need.

Kottler, Carlson, and Englar-Carlson have collected a group of fellow mental health professionals who have gone beyond the 50 minute hour, to make a real difference in their communities - locally and globally. Not just another philosophical treatise on the principles of social justice, this book looks to inspire readers with amazing stories of social action, while giving them practical advice on how to embark on their own actions. Contributors represent the areas of psychology, counseling, social work, and related disciplines, and will offer examples ranging from the founding of global nonprofits to local activities.
