Emotional Well-Being in the Legal Profession


9am - 5pm

Event Details

May was Mental Health Awareness Month. According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately one in five, or almost 47 million adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. Translation: One in five of your law department colleagues and outside counsel face mental health issues.

As an industry, it is crucial that we work together to reduce the stigma of mental health challenges and substance abuse disorder. Collaboration is critical. More than ever, having a true partnership with your outside counsel is the most significant step we can take in creating safe situations for those that want and/or need help to feel they can ask for it.

Please join us for the seminar Emotional Well-Being in the Legal Profession. This event brings together law firm and corporate legal executives leading the charge on improving impairment in the legal profession.
