Starling Marshall, president of the board of the Dave Nee Foundation, recently appeared on The Docket on MSNBC to discuss mental illness in the legal profession and the need to break down barriers to treatment. The Foundation’s mission is to eliminate the stigma associated with depression and suicide.
