Recognizing and Overcoming Depression and Anxiety for Legal Professionals

Depression and anxiety can be hard to deal with as an attorney, learn how to recognize the signs of this in your colleagues and steps that can be taken to help them or how to overcome this yourself.

Lawyers are struggling with epidemic rates of anxiety and depression. Most lawyers receive little or no treatment or support because they do not understand what these conditions really are or what they can do to help themselves or tap outside resources to recover. This topic helps lawyers understand the signs and symptoms of clinical anxiety and depression, common causes of these conditions, and some causes unique to the legal profession. This topic will provide lawyers with specific, practical steps that can take to help themselves and get outside help should they need it.
