​As a legal professional, your work could pose real challenges to your mental health every day — even before the pandemic. Those challenges are now multiplied. At this summit, you hear directly from legal professionals who experience mental illness about how they tackle these issues in their professional lives. Speakers discuss the impact of workplace and legal culture on members’ mental health and how to reduce stigma in the legal professions. A must-attend event for paralegals, lawyers, articling and paralegal students, law office diversity committees, and articling principals, you leave with effective tools to address mental health in your legal workplace, and learn how to support your colleagues with mental health issues.
