As a new year begins, so continues the focus of The Florida Bar on Mental Health and Wellness of Florida lawyers. Sadly, rates of attorney depression, suicide, and substance abuse are on the rise. Voluntary bars can play an important role in engaging members and offering help. A webinar on Feb. 25  — Creating a Cultural Shift – Implementing Wellness Initiatives That Stick  — is designed to show bar leaders how to make a lasting impact that goes beyond exercise events and physical challenges. Attendees will learn from Melissa Byers, executive director, of St. Petersburg Bar, about how it created initiatives to change the culture and help law firm partners understand how they can lower stress through simple wellness strategies.
