SBM presents virtual support group series

The State Bar of Michigan is holding a virtual support group series this month and in January, providing well-being and a meaningful group atmosphere for Michigan attorneys.

The series offers an opportunity for attorneys to connect with a small group of peers who understand the unique difficulties they face and to work together toward a solution.

The program is facilitated by a clinical case manager from the Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program (LJAP).

The group meets via Zoom 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays to Jan. 26, 2022 (no meeting December 29).

Attorneys can attend any or all the meetings with no obligation for continued participation. The cost is $5 per session.

Email or call 1-800-996-5522 to register.

Attendees must be willing to respect confidentiality, present with an open mind, be tolerant of others’ views, and be willing to explore the importance of lawyer well-being.
