A Lawyer’s Story of Depression: Seeking Help and Speaking Out

Dan Lukasik, creator of the website Lawyers with Depression, wasn’t always on the forefront of the issue. In fact, Lukasik was the managing partner of a law firm, silently struggling for years before revealing that he was suffering with depression. Lukasik was recently a guest contributor to Everyday Health’s “Voices of Experience” which features perspectives on mental health and illness. There, Lukasik tells his story about breaking the silence to his colleagues about his depression, accepting treatment and returning to work more able to deal with his illness. Learn how he rejected his peers’ advice to tell his story anonymously and instead became an outspoken advocate for members of the legal community with depression.
