May – and Mental Health Awareness month – is just around the corner! The Institute for Well-Being in Law (a recently formed non-profit charitable organization that evolved from the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being) is planning another robust and exciting Well-Being Week in Law (WWIL) next week.
Between May 3 – 7, all legal professionals are invited to coordinate or participate in local activities. Don’t forget to include your family, friends, and colleagues in these inclusive community events!
Here’s the simple breakdown for each day next week:
Monday – Physical Well-Being
Tuesday – Spiritual Well-Being
Wednesday – Career Well-Being
Thursday – Social Well-Being
Friday – Emotional Well-Being
If you’re an individual looking to get involved, check out this resources page.
For organizations – law firms, corporate legal departments, government entities, bar associations, or others – these resources were specifically compiled for you.
Infographics, logos, daily social media posts, and a calendar are available for easy and quick download on this page. Please post about your experience using the hashtag #WellBeingWeekInLaw and follow COLAP as we participate in the week’s events:
Lastly, for all well-being coordinators (those building a well-being program for a law firm or other type of legal employer), SAVE THE DATE for the week of May 17 for the After Party. Until then, learn more here.
If you’re in need of general resources for well-being planning purposes all year, you can find benchmark reports, policy templates, and more here.
