BAR LEADERS TAKE HOME AWARDS

BAR TAKES PART IN NEW
MENTAL HEALTH SURVEY
The D.C. Bar is participating in a pivotal
research project that seeks to provide deeper
insight into mental health struggles in the
legal profession, including risk factors, triggers,
and suggestions to improve lawyer well-being.
The survey will build upon the findings of the
landmark 2016 American Bar Association/
Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation study that
revealed alarming levels of problem drinking
and mental health disorders among U.S.
attorneys. The survey will be distributed to
a random sample of 40,000 Bar members in
the spring.
