From the ABA Law Student Division
So many law students and lawyers have mental health issues. No one talks about it. Help us break the stigma. The ABA Law Student Division has selected March 28, 2016 as the official National Mental Health Day at law schools across the country. Law schools across the US can sponsor educational programs and events that teach and foster an understanding of severe depression and anxiety among law students and lawyers.

Lawyers rank among the most anxious, depressed, and suicidal professional. It is essential that they cultivate the skills and inner resources that enable them to not only manage their high stress environment, but thrive in their work. In this webinar, Cory Muscara will share the evidence-based practice of mindfulness meditation. With over a thousand scientific studies supporting its efficacy, mindfulness is proving to be one of the most effective methods for reducing stress, anxiety, depression, and burnout in working professionals. After this session, you will walk away with practical tools to begin a mindfulness meditation practice, manage stress in critical moments, and make the shift from surviving to thriving as a lawyer.
