Task Force on Mental Health Awareness

The goal of the Task Force on Mental Health Awareness is to educate our colleagues about mental health challenges confronting our profession and to destigmatize those issues and concerns. The Task Force seeks to improve understanding among our colleagues about what mental health challenges and related issues of substance abuse and impairment look like, how they impact individuals and the legal system at large, and how best to respond – including by making it easier and acceptable for affected individuals to seek help without recrimination or stigmatization. Through publication and circulation of available resources, we seek to enable our colleagues to recognize when help might be needed and to provide meaningful support, making it easier for affected individuals to find the help they need.
