Course Description

Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling and clearly indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers. In addition to a breakdown of the results of the recent ABA/Hazelden Krill report, Mr. Quinn will discuss: 1. The early warning signs of impairment, with special emphasis on alcoholism and depression. 2. The free services that Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers provides to lawyers, judges, their family members and law students. 3. A close look at what barriers exist that prevent lawyers and judges from seeking the help they need will be provided. 4. The role that education plays in breaking the stigma and fear associated with addiction and mental illness in the legal profession. 5. Special emphasis will be placed on what callers to the LCL Confidential Helpline can expect, regardless of whether it is a self- referral or a request for intervention assistance. 6. How best to approach the impaired individual
