Topic:

We know that you have been bombarded with messages about the Coronavirus, whether that be on television, social media, or in your community networks. In uncertain times like these, anxiety, stress, fear and negative thoughts can easily take control. You may be worried about being in crowds, getting a vaccine for you and your loved ones, your office, your clients, your finances or how to manage whatever the future holds as we prepare to return to the "new normal" in our personal and professional lives.

Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling and clearly indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers. Accordingly, unexpected events like those we are facing as a society will have an even greater impact on lawyers and those who work with them.

In light of this unprecedented crisis and it's far- reaching impact, our panel will discuss:

  • Well- being strategies to reduce or alleviate these conditions and maintain a healthy work/life balance.
  • Why legal professionals are at higher risk to develop mental health and substance use disorders.
  • Challenges and barriers facing legal professionals from seeking help
