Call To Action!

The Wellness Committee invites you to take action for mental health today! Take time to improve your wellbeing, whether it be through scheduling time on your calendar for self-care or signing up for a gym, yoga, or meditation session.

For those of you who have been putting off scheduling a therapy session or calling Lawyers Assistance Program to inquire about their programs for yourself or someone you care about, today’s the day to take action. Resources for attorneys include:
