Strategies for Overcoming Stigma

Acknowledging the challenge lawyers face in seeking help, Hicks discusses overcoming this hurdle by normalizing the conversation around mental health, leveraging available resources, and promoting a culture where it’s okay not to be okay.

Promoting Wellness through Initiatives
