Forewarned is Forearmed
We know that lawyers have high rates of mental health challenges:

So, now that we are armed with the knowledge that we are a profession who encounter mental health challenges at higher rates than the general community, what do we do this this knowledge?

Risk management is a core skill for lawyers, but it looks like we don’t always use this skill about our own well-being.

This section of our well-being is devoted to educating lawyers, articling students, law students and their families about lawyer well-being issues so that with this forewarning, we can forearm ourselves with resiliency and stress management strategies and knowledge about use of alcohol and other substances.
