Statistics show that a great deal of law students and legal professionals struggle with depression and anxiety. The stress and demands of law school can be emotionally exhausting and overwhelming. You are not alone in how you feel. We will share the story of Dave Nee, a Fordham University law student who struggled with major depression for years and who died by suicide in 2005 while studying for the Bar. Professor Silver will tell of her own struggles with major clinical depression. We will also share ways you can help yourself and your friends get what is needed to feel healthy and do well in school. Come – have lunch – and spend a little time thinking about yourself and your mental health.
