Recent studies have shown that lawyers are about four times more likely to suffer from mental illness than the general population. After law school, a significant proportion of law students have been found to suffer from depression. What should law schools, legal associations, law firms and the legal profession in general be doing to eliminate stigma and support those who are suffering? How can you recognize the signs of mental illness in your colleagues, or in yourself? What can or should you do to help? How does mental illness impact co-workers and loved ones? Join us for this important discussion to find out more and to be part of the solution.
