Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day. In 2010, Bell Let’s Talk began a new conversation about Canada’s mental health. The goal of the day is to engage an open discussion about mental illness, offer new ideas and hope for those who struggle. The Law Society and SLIA are also eager to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness within our profession. Over the last few days, the Law Society has been sharing wellness resources via our social media channels. The Bell Let’s Talk website contains a toolkit that may be of assistance to our members including:
We’d also like to remind our members about Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL), a free, confidential assistance program. Any Saskatchewan lawyer, articling student, law student or their eligible family member may contact LCL 24 hours a day, 7 days a week directly for confidential assistance. Please also see the SLIA website for numerous useful wellness articles.
