These aspects of a lawyers’ work including bias can cause chronic stress, resulting in burnout, poor physical health, or other health challenges such as anxiety, depression, substance use, addiction, and mental illness.  Effectively managing workplace stress is critical to lawyer health, competence, and ethical responsibility.
