Product Description:

National Speaker, Katherine Bender from the Dave Nee Foundation, presents on the topic of depression and mental health issues to lawyers and law students around the country.

Attorneys have endless responsibilities and obligations, difficult cases and challenging clients. In the midst of it all, people easily forget lawyers are human and need to take care of themselves. As a result, emotional and physical well-being and overall self-care can get overlooked and ignored in the legal profession. This can lead to substance use, mental health concerns, and in some cases suicide.

This recorded CLE helps you learn how to recognize and respond to the signs and systems that they or a colleague may be experiencing psychological distress. Also, learn how to recognize the warning signs of suicide and, most importantly, learn about appropriate interventions and resources. Focus specifically on the prevalence of substance use, mental health concerns, and suicide within the legal profession and explore potential risk factors for attorneys.

Presenter: Katherine Bender, Ph.D., NCC – Programming Director, Dave Nee Foundation, New York
