Depression will be the leading cause of chronic illness by 2030. Additionally, a higher risk of depression and poor health occur for individuals with economic disadvantage. Thus, opportunities for social justice in action exist through a holistic understanding of income-based disparities in health (physical and mental) and preparation for work in inter-professional settings to improve accessibility. This session will discuss the aforementioned associations and opportunities for counselor education.
