This webinar is an in-depth discussion of the mental health challenges facing the legal profession. Lawyers experience mental illness issues and suicide far beyond those experienced by the general population. These issues take a toll not only on attorneys but on their clients as well, as made evident by the frequency with which mental health issues are discussed in disciplinary opinions. Learn how to recognize these issues in yourself and others, and how to respond to them when they arise through the presentation of facts and law, and the discussion of hypothetical situations.
