It can be hard to maintain mental wellness as a law student because of established stigmas and a lack of available resources. But, because wellness helps with success, students are taking action to change how law schools approach this subject. In this episode of the ABA Law Student Podcast, host Caitlin Peterson talks to Alexandria Gilbert, Nick DeFiesta, and Caroline Phillips about how the topic of mental health is addressed at law school. Their conversation includes how they are collaborating with their schools to bring attention to the issue and how other schools, divisions, and firms can help get the word out.
