Focusing on Mental Health and Wellness

Thursday, May 11, 2023
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM Central Standard Time (US & Mexico)

Please join the IADC Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Committee for a panel discussion.


Join the IADC at 1:00 p.m. CDT on Thursday, May 11 as we continue our discussions on mental health and wellness, identifying and focusing on issues that specifically affect attorneys and others in the legal profession.

A 2014 survey found that 28% of lawyers suffered from depression, 19% of lawyers had severe anxiety, and 11.4% of lawyers had suicidal thoughts in the previous year. A 2020 study found that “[r]oughly half of practicing attorneys are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety, with approximately 30% of those falling in the mild range and nearly 20% falling in the moderate/severe range.”

Our panel will share personal stories and concrete action items that you can take to identify and help yourself and others with mental health and wellness.
