The prevalence of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse within the legal profession is well known. Attorney Will Jordan personalizes the statistics by sharing his experience with anxiety and depression. Using a storytelling format, Will describes how he came to recognize his mental health struggles, how he tried (unsuccessfully) to cure them, and how, over the years, he has learned to cope with them. Will seeks to decrease the stigma around mental health issues in the legal profession and to provide encouragement and resources for lawyers suffering from anxiety, depression, or substance abuse.
