An initiative led by the CBA Young Lawyers Section and the Mental Health & Awareness Committee is inviting legal professionals from all over Canada to consider the importance of personal well-being. The campaign, Law Needs Well-Being Because… takes place this week (October 3–9, 2021) during Mental Illness Awareness Week.
The hope is that this campaign will help to raise awareness, normalize conversations around mental health, highlight the impact good mental health can have on one’s personal and professional life, and inspire legal professionals, law students, and articling students to take good care of themselves.
Many lawyers have stepped up to talk about what this initiative means to them and the impact mental health has on their own personal and professional lives. You can check out their campaign photos here. If you are interested in getting involved with this incredible initiative, please reach out to the CBA for more details, or post your own photo/message to social using the hashtag #LawNeedsWellBeingBecause
Stay well and keep healthy.
