Anti-Stigma Campaign from The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division

The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division (YLD) has launched a #StigmaFreeYLD Campaign to help fight the stigma associated with mental illness in the legal profession. According to the campaign website, “[they] aim to demonstrate that dealing with mental illness is not a weakness, but a sign of strength.”

As part of the campaign, the YLD has produced a series of videos featuring attorneys “just like you who have struggled with mental illness but have built wildly successful practices and found true enjoyment in their lives by taking action and seeking help.”

The YLD is encouraging others to share their stories on social media by using the hashtag #StigmaFreeYLD.
