Professional Development

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Overwork. Stress. Workplace, financial or relationship problems. As legal professionals, we deal with challenges that can cause us to feel overwhelmed – or worse. Some of us will experience anxiety, depression or other forms of mental illness.

Our CBA Wellness professional development programs will give you the knowledge you need to recognize the signs, manage the issues, and deal with a full range of mental health and wellness problems.

MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION

This self-directed online learning program aims to help legal professionals recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health and addiction issues. It offers proactive wellness tactics, as well as treatment and recovery strategies for depression, anxiety, stress and other mood disorders. It also aims to reduce stigmatizing behaviours and attitudes that can get in the way of recovery and long-term wellness.

Mental Health and Wellness in the Legal Profession is a collaborative initiative of the Mood Disorders Society of Canada, Bell Let's Talk and The Canadian Bar Association.
