In case you missed it, The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division’s latest #StigmaFreeYLD video is out, the third of five video testimonials from Bar members who have struggled with—and overcome—mental health and wellness issues during their careers. The YLD launched the #StigmaFreeYLD initiative to help end the stigma over mental health and illness in the legal profession. The initiative demonstrates that dealing with mental illness is not a weakness, but a sign of strength. By embracing your reality and dealing it, you can better understand how stress, anxiety and mental illness may be affecting your practice and your life. The campaign also provides resources that attorneys can use to meet and overcome these challenges. Watch the compelling story of Wayne LaRue Smith and learn more at
