Law Students Learn Mindfulness

The University of Maine School of Law and the Maine Assistance Program for Lawyers and Judges (MAP) are taking measures to help law students develop healthy, balanced lifestyles. In honor of the ABA Law Student Division’s National Mental Health Day, the law school hosted a panel on mindfulness meditation as a method for reducing stress, anxiety and depression. Students learned mindfulness exercises, and were educated on the Maine Assistance Program for Lawyers and Judges (MAP) which provides free and confidential assistance to students. It was also announced that there will be a four session MAP- sponsored course on Mindfulness which will be available to all students, faculty and staff.
