The ABA, CDC, and state bars all recognize that mental health issues have a profound impact on our profession. But why is this and how can lawyers be more mindful of how to address mental health issues as they arise? This discussion will not only delve into the how and why of mental health issues impacting the legal profession, but it will also discuss how attorneys can get confidential assistance to deal with mental health issues.
