LMA created the Well-Being Resource Center and Well-Being Committee to support legal professionals in being resilient, healthy and whole. The information and tools in the center are for our members and all in the legal industry to access in order to help them and their teams feel supported, safe, engaged and healthy.
The purpose of the Well-Being Committee is to support members of the legal marketing community by providing resources, education, and advocacy to promote positive mental health, cultivate resilience and create healthy work environments. The committee seeks to reduce mental health stigma, provide resources and training, as well as offer actionable recommendations to increase well-being and support the success of legal marketing professionals.
