Laywers Depression Project
The Lawyers Depression Project (LDP) was founded in 2018 to help break the stigma around discussing mental health in the legal profession, and to support a need for connection. LDP is a community made up of several hundred legal professionals (attorneys, paralegals, law students, and admin) who have suffered from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders, trauma, sexual abuse, addiction and other mental health conditions, or who just don’t feel quite right. The community includes a confidential web forum, where members can post anonymously on a number of topics related to mental health. LDP also offers free, anonymous, and confidential peer-to-peer support group meetings online. Any legal professionals, including law students, who are interested can read more and sign up (anonymously if they would like) at LDP’s website: https://www.lawyersdepressionproject.org/.
