Bar Association of Erie County

Organizational Member Since August 2022

Mental health issues are experienced by all and lawyers are no exception. For too long, there has been a stigma against talking about mental health in the legal community. Lawyers are historically very resistant to talking about and admitting to mental health issues, to protect their image, their reputation, and even their clients and business. Thankfully, the walls around addressing mental illness are slowly crumbing amongst lawyers and the judiciary, but we have a long way to go. The Bar Association of Erie County would be proud to be a part of the Erie County Anti-Stigma Coalition to assist in ending the stigma and helping those in need.
