Spotlight on Health & Wellness from the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division

For the third year in a row, the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division (YLD) has designated May as “Health & Wellness Month” to “bring awareness to mental and physical issues that affect the quality of life of lawyers in Florida.” Throughout the month, the YLD will be hosting a series of wellness webinars, issuing “daily challenges” via social media (#livewell and #flayld) and encouraging others to host their own health and wellness events and activities.

The Florida Bar’s 2016 Economics and Law Office Management Survey found that 60 percent of attorneys under age 35 ranked “quality of life” as the second biggest factor impacting their ability to practice law successfully. The YLD is responding by increasing their focus on wellness and mental health.

Hear from YLD President Katherine Hurst Miller, and President-elect Designate Christian George, about their plans to prioritize mental health in The Florida Bar News article, “Bar YLD promotes health and wellness.”
