Mental Health & the Practice of Law

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

Recent studies have confirmed, perhaps unsurprisingly, that depression and anxiety are prevalent among lawyers. With our current reality in mind, I thought it was important to share content that addresses mental health and the practice of law. Now, more than ever, it is of critical importance to recognize the symptoms of depression and anxiety in ourselves and our peers, take it seriously, and be treated professionally.

In this CCLA video, Andrew McCreary shares his personal experience managing mental health illness while practicing, how his firm responded and how he continues to practice successfully.
