Mental Illness in the Legal Profession

Mental illness is becoming the leading cause of disability globally, yet it remains cloaked in secrecy, shame and misunderstanding. This presentation discusses the reality and impact of mental illness in our lives as well as models of understanding and intervention. The goal is both to raise literacy as well as change culture in a way that leads to better lives for the many affected Canadians and their families.

Speaker
David Goldbloom, MD, is Senior Medical Adviser at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto and former chair of the Mental Health Commission of Canada. He is a professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and author of the book How Can I Help?
