Authentic Self-Care and Minority Legal Professionals

Self-Care is more than just a one day activity but rather an Intentional and Consistent Daily Practice that requires Honesty with Self, Awareness and Reflection of Self, as well as Unconditional Positive Regards for Self.

In 2016, there were 2 separate studies that focused on mental health and substance abuse among law students and attorneys and both highlighted that Depression, Anxiety, Substance Abuse, and Suicidal Ideations were increasing among Legal Professionals at alarming rates.

Thursday, April 22, I was Blessed with the opportunity to Virtually join the Port City Bar Association, comprising of  minority attorneys, judges, and legal professionals working in Savannah Georgia, to discuss “Authentic Self Care Practices and the Importance of Taking Care of Their Emotional, Mental, Physical, & Spiritual Health”. We also discuss the Impacts of Racism and How to Navigate Racism In Today’s Climate.

Authentic Self-Care is a Process and not a one day occurrence!

Special THANK YOU to the Port City Bar Association Executive Board for extending the invitation for me to provide an Educational and Empowering Discussion
