[WEBINAR] Staying Healthy on the Bench: A Mental Health and Wellness Program for Judges [CC]

This webinar is intended for judges who wish to address self-help strategies judges can use to become more stress-resilient and lead happier and more fulfilling careers. Judges, like many Americans, struggle with stress, anxiety, burnout, and depression. These conditions are made all the more difficult because of the isolation and loneliness judges often experience. A 2019 survey found many judges feel stressed by heavy caseloads and being the sole decision-maker on weighty matters before them. Join this 90 minute presentation customized to meet the unique demands of judges affected by day-to-day stress of their responsibilities.

Attendees of the webinar will learn about:

  • Constructive ways to combat the stigma of anxiety and depression
  • Policies and procedures to assist judges in dealing with treatable mental health problems
  • Self-help strategies judges can use to become more stress-resilient and lead happier and more fulfilling careers
