Need Help or Want Info? New Mental Health and Wellness Web Center Available
Mental health issues touch every facet of our legal community – from sole practitioners and law firm partners all the way down to law school students who feel daily pressure to graduate and become licensed and successful as soon as possible.
Under the direction of the Special Committee on Mental Health and Wellness of Florida Lawyers, our website now has a central location for resources for lawyers, the latest research on the mental health of lawyers and law students, as well as how to get help. This page will also be updated with the Town Hall events happening across the state.
In addition, this Special Committee is working to destigmatize mental illness, recommend best practices and remedies, and help bring more balance into members’ daily professional lives. This issue impacts us all and the broader justice system, as healthier and more fulfilled attorneys are better advocates – for themselves, their communities and the justice system.
Listen to the latest podcast from The Florida Bar Practice Resource Institute on these important issues.
