Law student rates of severe depression and anxiety are increasing rapidly. In fact, between 20-40% of law students graduate with clinical depression.

To respond to this worrying trend, the ABA's Law Student Division has created a Law Student Mental Health Toolkit for Student Bar Associations and Administrators to help improve the mental health of today's law students.

Read through the Toolkit, discuss the Mental Health Initiative with your friends and classmates, and implement programs on your campus to address law student mental health issues.

GPSolo members may join up to three of the Division’s nearly 50 substantive committees, including the Law Student Committee. GPSolo’s Law Student Committee is a great opportunity for law students to learn more aebout leadership in the Division and the ABA.
