The State Bar of Michigan launched a virtual support group for its members in February 2021. While the group was established in response to the challenges that attorneys were facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it aims to address professional well-being in general. The discussions are organized into eight-week series, whose sessions delve into a particular issue that Michigan lawyers face. Participants connect to the support group through a confidential, HIPAA-telehealth compliant platform; they can attend individual sessions for $5 or sign up for the full eight-weeks for $30.
“Resilience through a Pandemic” was the first conversation topic, which explored the ongoing struggles that legal professionals were facing with COVID-19, and how to navigate them. For all meetings, clinical case managers from the State Bar’s Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program serve as facilitators for connecting attorneys with experts and peers who can help them navigate the difficulties that arise for many lawyers, and work toward coming up with solutions.
