Join the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (@ABACoLAP) for a live Twitter Chat titled “Suicide Prevention and Postvention in the Legal Profession” today at 1 p.m. EDT.
The guests will be Kate Bender, Programming Director of the Dave Nee Foundation (@NeeFoundation) and Yvette Hourigan, Director of the Kentucky Lawyer Assistance Program (@KYLAPtweets). They will be discussing the disproportionately high rate of suicides in the legal profession, symptoms or behaviors that might indicate a person may be considering attempting suicide, how to get help or refer someone else to help, and ways law schools and law firms can address these issues.
