If you’ve ever experienced a panic attack, then you’ve probably felt many of the uncomfortable physical and mental sensations that can happen when you’re experiencing a heightened state of anxiety: racing heartbeat, sweating, a feeling of impending doom, among others. Learn strategies to stop a panic attack, or at least make it less severe, in this helpful article from the Cleveland Clinic, “How to Stop a Panic Attack in Its Tracks.”

Find additional wellness resources on the MBA's Health & Well-Being page, which was launched in April 2020 to support member wellness during COVID-19. It features helpful resources for coping with stress, anxiety, panic, substance use disorder and more during the pandemic, with links provided by the ABA Commission on Lawyers Assistance Program, as well as the MBA’s own Lawyer Well-Being Committee.
