Bell Let's Talk
Many lawyers struggle with mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and substance use. Led by the Young Lawyers Advisory Committee, CBABC is participating in Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 29, 2020 to fight the stigma around mental health issues in the legal profession.
As part of the campaign, the Young Lawyers Advisory Committee asked members of the legal profession to share their personal stories regarding their experiences and challenges with mental health issues. Talking about mental health issues can help end the stigma around mental illness.
Break the silence. Mental illness touches us all in some way directly or through a friend, family member or colleague. Stories of people who have experienced mental health issues and who are doing well can really challenge stereotypes. Most people with mental health issues can and do recover, just by talking about it.
