In one of our first blog posts, we detailed the importance of mental health in the law community. According to the Dave Nee Foundation, lawyers are 3.6 times more likely to suffer severe depression. Here at Lauren Richardson Law, PLLC, we support the Florida Bar’s mental health awareness initiative. The Florida Bar and Young Lawyers Division (YLD) have combined efforts and designated the month of May as “Health and Wellness Month” for Florida lawyers.This is the fourth year in the row that the YLD has designated May as the “Health and Wellness Month.” The Florida Bar will be utilizing the hashtag, #WellLawyer, to promote its mental health initiative and will post relevant content on its social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. Check out the Florida Bar website to see what activities the Florida Bar will employ this month for their mental health awareness campaign.
