Speakers: Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi & Dr. Diana Uchiyama of the Lawyers’ Assistance Program

 

Topic: Recognizing, Understanding & Referring a Colleague in Need

 

Presentation Summary: Recent studies have confirmed that the overwhelming stress that is commonplace in our legal profession disproportionately results in attorneys suffering higher levels of depression, anxiety, addiction, and other serious issues at rates much higher than those seen in the general population.

 

Participants in this program will learn:

  • Why attorneys are a vulnerable population;
  • The common mental health and substance abuse issues faced by our colleagues
  • The signs and symptoms of those issues; and
  • What to do when you identify a colleague in need.
