Don't be like the mental health professional in this article! While there are legitimate circumstances that a social worker could consider writing a letter for a client's emotional support animal, online broker sites often ask a licensed person to diagnose and make recommendations for clients in circumstances that violate multiple Ohio laws and rules. NASW Ohio urges you to remain aware of the Code of Ethics and all relevant state laws and rules when considering writing a letter for an emotional support animal through an online service. If you have questions about whether or not to write a letter for a client, call NASW Ohio.
