The Keep Calm and Lawyer On Edition: A Candid Discussion about Mental Health and Addiction in the Legal Profession
Lawyers tend to bury themselves in work and focus solely on getting through the day. The result is that lawyers all too often ignore their own well-being and carry a sense of ambivalence about the legal profession’s problems with mental health and wellness. In recognition of World Mental Health day, host Jonathan Amarilio is joined by special guest host Stephanie Villinski of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, along with guests Dr. Diana Uchiyama, Executive Director of Illinois’ Lawyers Assistance Program (LAP) and Chicago-based lawyer and wellness expert, Jonathan Beitner. The group has a candid discussion about lawyer mental health and addiction, as well as ways the legal profession can collectively cultivate a greater sense of wellness so that all lawyers can be as happy and successful as possible.
