Mental Health & Well-Being During A Time of Crisis (RECORDING)

Today we all are experiencing tremendous stress due to the epidemic. At the best of times, attorneys are susceptible to mental health stressors, that can lead to problems including alcohol and substance abuse, anxiety and depression, and suicide. There are a variety of risk factors and causes for these problems, such as the individual personality types who are attracted to the profession, the nature of the profession, and environmental stressors like workplace culture. The COVID-19 pandemic, and the related economic instability, only compound these existing risk factors—mental health experts predict a tsunami of mental health challenges in the coming months.

The webinar will review the intersection of mental health challenges and attorneys’ ethical obligation to provide clients with competent representation. We will provide a brief overview of the eye-opening pre-epidemic statistics around depression, substance abuse, and mental health in the bar. We will discuss potential impacts on productivity and work quality, the responsibilities of managers and supervisors, and wellness focused solutions as well as how the USPTO’s Diversion Pilot Program and employers can help affected practitioners.
