“We invited Brian to kick-off Winston & Strawn’s 2019 commitment to opening up the dialogue around mental health. Brian pointed out in his presentation on how many in the legal field are two times as likely to suffer from anxiety, depression, addiction, and suicidal ideations. He highlighted the need to build places of belonging where we can best serve each other and our clients, and find ways to reduce the shame and stigma around these natural human releases to the stresses of our profession. Brian pointed out that even the most successful among us are just as vulnerable and real as everyone else. Brian’s ability to facilitate this dialogue in a very approachable, vulnerable and heartfelt way is a great step in helping reduce our mind chatter and form real bonding and connections that can help inoculate us from mental health struggles. We at Winston will continue to collaborate with him and hope he helps you and your organizations find the path to well-being. Let’s take care of each other. Live well!
