Eliminating stigma, Breaking down barriers

The Florida Bar’s Mental Health & Wellness of Florida Lawyers Committee is working to destigmatize mental illness, recommend best practices and remedies, and help bring more balance into members’ daily professional lives. Read the latest about the Committee!

Let’s Break the Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness

Now more than ever, attorneys are facing challenges with stress, anxiety, and mental illness – and this struggle all too often results in substance abuse, depression, or even suicide. To make matters worse, attorneys feel like they are unable to talk about mental illness as it will be seen as a sign of weakness. This stigma ends now.

The Florida Bar YLD launched the #StigmaFreeYLD initiative to help end the stigma over mental health and illness in our profession. In addition, they will be recognizing May 2019 as Health and Wellness Month with wellness webinars, helpful CLEs, profiles of Florida lawyers and their wellness tips, local bar wellness programs, and much more. Take a look at their Health and Wellness page to see more!
