As she started working with adults who dealt with intense #mentalhealth and substance use issues, Jodi Jacobson Frey, PhD, MSW, realized that she didn’t need to wait until someone hit bottom before there could be change. "What if we could intervene earlier? Before they lost their job, and their insurance, and their connection to their livelihood.” As the chair of the Employee Assistance Program and an associate professor at @mdsocialwork, Dr. Frey is doing just that, preparing social workers for the employee assistance field by educating them about counseling, management and organizational consulting, and crisis intervention in the workplace.Click the link in our profile to learn more about Dr. Frey and all of our 2018 #UMBChampions, or visit umaryland.edu/champions. #WeAreUMB #socialwork
