The ABA observes Mental Health Awareness Month each October, as well as World Mental Health Day and Law School Mental Health Day on October 10. Law students know firsthand the struggles of those affected by mental health issues, and the ABA Law Student Division and the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs are committed to increasing awareness, national participation, and funding for mental health and well-being in all aspects of the profession.
To that end, the ABA Law Student Division has announced its Mental Health Awareness T-Shirt Design contest. Students at ABA-accredited law schools can submit their design for an official ABA mental health t-shirt by November 30, 2019. The winning design will be selected and printed on to t-shirts, and proceeds from the sales of those shirts will benefit the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP)!
