Collaboration and Services


The Social Work Care Collaborative was established in the Spring semester of 2019 through the IHHS Interprofessional Clinic to support members of our community while providing students with a quality field experience with activities on the individual, groups, community, and organizational levels. We partnered with other departments in the Beaver College of Health Sciences, other colleges, community members, organizations and agencies to help fill areas of service gaps and to assist other groups in meeting or extending their identified service goals.  


In January 2021, the Social Work Care Collaborative expanded services to include Appalachian State University's student body as well as continue our work in the community.  We have been working in partnership with existing groups on campus such as the Early Intervention Team, the Dean of Students Office, University Housing, the Counseling Center and Wellness and Prevention to determine areas of service needs and have several services currently available, with additional services pending.
