About the Seminar
According to a study conducted by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and the American Bar Association published in 2016,
“Approximately 21 percent of licensed, employed attorneys are “problem drinkers,” 28 percent struggle with some form of depression, and 19 percent have demonstrated symptoms of anxiety...The results, taken from 15,000 attorneys in 19 states, showed younger attorneys in their first 10 years of practicing professionally experience the highest risk of such problems.”
In short, this is a very real human and business issue, with personal well-being, client engagement and retention, malpractice exposures, and reputational risk all on the line.
One of the first programs to address substance use disorder and mental health in the legal profession, this event is a must-attend for law firms, general, and in-house counsel. Join us as we examine how safeguarding attorneys, improving law firm culture, and ensuring the highest level of service are inextricably linked. Walk away with a better understanding of preventative measures and protocols for assisting those suffering from substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, and mental diagnosis.
