Mental Health Alliance Speaker Panel
Time and Location

11/16/2017 12:00PM - 01:00PM, CHERRY ROOM

Law students will learn important self-care tips—just in time for exams—at this event, to be held Thursday, November 16, 2017. The New England Law | Boston student-led Mental Health Alliance will host the panel.

Thanks to crammed schedules and late-night study sessions, law school can be a stressful time for many. As you head into “exam season,” it’s important to make sure you have the tools you need to take care of yourself and ensure success. It’s not uncommon to struggle with a variety of personal issues in law school, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or even just a little extra stress—but the good news is you’re not alone.

On Thursday, November 16, from 12:00-1:00 p.m., please join the newly appointed Mental Health Alliance in the Cherry Room for a panel discussion featuring expert speakers who have been in your shoes. The panel will feature:

  • Barbara Bowe, who will lead the conversation. She is a licensed clinician at Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers Massachusetts (LCL), an organization that provides free and confidential support for lawyers, law students, judges, and their families.
  • New England Law alumna and partner who has been in recovery 20+ years. She will share her path to recovery and the success she has accomplished since then.

  • David Siegel, New England Law Professor. He will discuss his experiences and work with clients who suffer from mental health issues and addiction.  

The panel will then conduct a Q&A and open discussion with students. Refreshments will also be served.
