Throughout history, community leaders deemed it necessary to  determine core principles, rules, and values to ensure the existence of a  productive and healthy community. These principles, rules, and values  serve as the foundation for establishing and maintaining societies that  support the mental health and welfare of their members. Your values give  rise to passion around issues that you believe need changing and that  motivate you to take action. By upholding these values, you can  contribute to a society that supports its members. 

To prepare:

  • Select a societal issue from anywhere in the world  about which you are passionate. If you selected a societal issue for  your Capstone Project, select a different one to use for this  Discussion. If you selected a profession-related issue for the Capstone  Project, you should select a societal issue for this Discussion. 
  • Think about your personal values that make this  issue important to you and how upholding these values might contribute  to society.
