GPSOLO Article on Overcoming Depression

A recent health care edition of GPSOLO features an article titled, “Out of the Darkness: Overcoming Depression among Lawyers,” bringing more awareness to the high rates of suicide, depression and mental health issues within the legal profession and offering paths to recovery. The authors point out how the problem is rooted in the nature of the profession and how required disclosures to the bar may contribute to an already all-too-common reluctance to seek help. The article ends by providing warning signs for depression and suicide as well as a number of ways lawyers can obtain confidential assistance.
