Recent studies have confirmed that the overwhelming stress that is commonplace in our legal profession disproportionately results in attorneys suffering higher level of depression, anxiety, addiction, and other serious issues at rates much higher than those seen in the general population. Participants in this program will learn:

  • The common issues faced by our colleagues;
  • The signs and symptoms of those issues; and
  • What to do when you identify a colleague in need.
