The incidence of substance abuse and mental health issues is greater for attorneys than it is for most other professions. In these isolating times, healthy coping strategies are at a premium. CELA members will share glimpses of their recovery and how they have not only survived but thrived despite these challenges. A representative from the Lawyer Assistance Program will also discuss why attorneys are so at risk and will share resources that the California Bar has made available to you.
