  4. May is Health and Wellness…
The Florida Bar is proud to be partnering with our Young Lawyer’s Division to recognize May as the fourth annual “Health & Wellness Month.” This initiative is designed to bring awareness to mental and physical issues that affect the quality of life of lawyers in Florida. The Florida Bar worked with local bar associations on town halls, which featured conversations about the importance of mental and physical health as well as asking for help when it’s needed. We look forward to continuing and growing the dialogue this month.

We encourage you to participate in our daily challenges, and ask that you use the hashtags #WellLawyer and #flayld when you share your stories on social media. We want this conversation to trend online so that we can shed light on this important issue, and improve the lives of lawyers throughout our state.

Visit the Young Lawyer’s Division Health and Wellness page for the latest activities, tips and events, as well as profiles of leading attorneys on how they work to reduce stress and increase wellness.
