High-Performing and Highly Stressed: How Attorneys Can Prioritize Mental Health

There is a familiar pattern in the lives of attorneys at work (and beyond). No matter how much is achieved and accomplished, it never feels like it is enough.

Attorneys are constantly working. They can’t put work down. They are not sleeping or taking care of their health. They feel the need to be perfect or at least excellent at all times in all areas of life: as employees, colleagues, parents, friends, children, and even acquaintances.

In this talk, Kara Hardin, a mental health educator, Registered Psychotherapist, and former practicing corporate and securities lawyer, will explore the complicated relationship between the lifestyle lawyers lead and their mental health.

Hardin will share individual and organizational strategies to navigate the big and small challenges associated with the high-performing legal profession.
