Lawyers and Depression
Depression within the legal community is a very real issue. According to the American Psychiatric Association, lawyers as a group are 3.6 times more likely to suffer from depression than the average person. On Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen welcomes colleague Cindy Chanley, and special guest, Professor Brian Clarke, Assistant Professor at the Charlotte School of Law. Brian shares his own personal struggle with depression, talks about recognizing the signs of depression, getting help, and how the legal community is coming together to help their own.
