Video highlights: Recovering lawyers address substance abuse and mental health issues plaguing the profession

Lawyers share their recovery stories to educate and encourage all stakeholders in the profession— from judges, legal regulators and legal employers,  to representatives of law schools, bar associations and lawyer assistance programs—to learn how and know when to refer those needing help to lawyer assistance programs.     

Panelists also discussed regaining work-life balance and recognizing addictive behavior during the ABA Midyear Meeting program titled, “Attorney Well-Being: It’s Your Life in the Balance, Right?” on Feb. 2 in Vancouver.
