Mental Health, Competence, Substance Abuse and Addiction in the Legal Profession: A Focus on Gender Distinctions

Program Number: 2726 Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD

Studies show that lawyers are at greater risk for alcohol use disorders, depression, other mental illness and stress than members of other professions or the general population. Women and men attorneys differ in the ways and reasons that these problems develop, their symptoms, their willingness to get help and the types of treatment that are most effective. Stigma is a particular issue for women. Learn about these gender differences and how to recognize problems, reach out to offer help and the resources that are available for men and women in the legal profession.
