Celebrate National Mental Health Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today is the day to celebrate National Mental Health Day at law schools across the country. It’s a day officially selected by the ABA Law Student Division to help break the stigma associated with severe depression and anxiety among law students and lawyers.

Have a look at the ABA’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Toolkit for a refresher on the signs and symptoms of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, stress, and suicide risk. The toolkit also includes ideas on how law students and student bar associations can get involved with breaking the stigma associated with mental health issues.

Another great resource is the Dave Nee Foundation, founded in honor of the memory of a promising law student who took his own life after losing the fight against severe depression. The Dave Nee Foundation is somewhere you can find current research on depression and suicide, programs to help law students and lawyers, and more.
