The Massachusetts Bar Association and the Supreme Judicial Court Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being are excited to introduce The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: A Toolkit for Bar Associations in Massachusetts.
The Toolkit, which was created in partnership between the MBA Lawyer Well-Being Committee (chaired by MBA Vice President Grace Garcia and Marianne LeBlanc) and the SJC Standing Committee, provides extensive resources for individuals, employers and organizations within our legal community to help them attain greater success in achieving a healthy, positive and productive balance of work, personal life and wellness.
It also provides sample well-being educational programs with an index of local speakers, in addition to extensive resources on mental health, substance use and addiction, and tools for thriving.
The Toolkit is also available on the MBA Health & Well-Being webpage
, and the SJC Standing Committee’s webpage
, and will be updated regularly so that it remains a vital resource for the community.
Please direct any Toolkit feedback and suggestions to Grace Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Marianne LeBlanc at email@example.com
