Mental Health Resources for Lawyers
We have created a list of mental health resources to support the podcast because mental health is just as important as physical health. Unfortunately, the stigma around mental health and therapy is very prevalent in our society. However, we can resist this stigma by openly acknowledging that being human is not always easy. All of us face adversity at times and need support to navigate life’s challenges. By sharing our stories with one another, we are reminded that we are more alike than we are different. Please check out the following resources to connect with a mental health professional and/or support group.
This list is compiled by Tracena Marie. Tracena is a registered drama therapist with the North American Drama Therapy Association. If you would like to learn more ways creative arts therapy modalities may be able to support you, please feel free to contact Tracena Marie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
