Asking for Help

We have one more story to add to the list of attorneys with mental health and addiction issues. Unfortunately, it's less frequent that we have stories of recovery to post, though a blog post from a few months back did highlight one attorney's success after getting help. In that post, we identified several resources here locally that are designed to keep you on track or get you back on track if you suffer a personal or professional setback.

If you'd prefer to do some reading up before reaching out, we also have several books on wellness. In fact, we've pull all of our wellness books into a small collection in the Reserve Room, so you can quickly access them.

We've written here in the past about exam stress, but really, law school can be stressful year round. It's not just the challenge of class; it's the challenge of figuring out a job or a career, perhaps for the first time. Don't worry if you're worried. Just ask for help.
