Lawyers Living Well
Too many lawyers are experiencing high levels of stress and are unhealthy and unhappy, adversely affecting their professional and personal lives. The State Bar of Georgia wants to help you by promoting health and wellness among our members and staff, including the development of work/life balance CLE programs, and increase awareness of existing Bar programs that deal with such issues.
A key objective for the lawyer wellness initiative will be to make sure our members know about resources already in place to help them:
- Lawyer Assistance Program
- Suicide Awareness Campaign
- SOLACE | Support of Lawyers, All Concern Encouraged
- Law Practice Management
- Lawyers Helping Lawyers
- Sports & Fitness Meetups
About the Attorney Wellness Task Force
This task force will study and promote lawyer wellness programs by identifying factors that impact the physical and emotional well-being of attorneys. It will explore programs, accumulate information, and educate members about wellness issues and resources.
The Wellness Committee is comprised of a dedicated group of practicing lawyers who understand the day-to-day stresses associated with the practice of law. It is the goal of the committee to seek out and vet sources of information that will be helpful to the members of the State Bar of Georgia and to provide resources for our members in crisis or simply wanting help.
