LAP Director Receives National Award

In recognition of her efforts to educate the legal community about depression and suicide, Kentucky Lawyers Assistance Program (KYLAP) Yvette Hourigan has received the Dave Nee Foundation’s national David S. Stoner Uncommon Counselor Award. The Foundation’s mission is “to eliminate the stigma associated with depression and suicide by promoting and encouraging not only the diagnosis and treatment of depression among young adults, but also the education of young people, their families, and friends about the disease of depression.” Hourigan received the award at the Foundation’s fall gala in New York City this past Saturday, where she was also honored for her work addressing mental health issues in her community and in Kentucky’s three law schools.
