The MSBA's Public Section and the 18th District Bar Association Present
"Chronic Stress, Mental Health and Addiction"
Lawyers face stress daily and are subject to particular circumstances which can lead to higher levels of stress than for most other members of the population. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness, which are also more prevalent among lawyers. By understanding this continuum, and learning stress management techniques, lawyers can better implement relevant and realistic strategies for stress management and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a problem. Personal examples and information on Minnesota's lawyer assistance program will also be provided.
