With such a stressful profession, many attorneys face addiction and other mental health issues. If you find yourself struggling–or know another lawyer who is–what resources are out there? Does admitting a problem have to harm your career? What are your ethical duties if you do know that a colleague is battling an addiction, or suffering from mental health problems?

Krill is currently finishing a study in conjunction with the ABA to research substance abuse, depression and anxiety in legal profession.
