Law student support group for law students with depression

The law student support group for law students with depression continues to meet every Friday during the semester from 8 – 9 am in the Jury Room (enter opposite room 112). A local practitioner, leads the group for law students experiencing stress, including those with depression. When he is not available, other younger attorneys attend the session. Coffee and bagels are served. The support group meets when classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters.

Free Brief screenings

Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional - they are a checkup from your neck up. This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.

Lawyers with Depression web site

Dan Lukasik began a support group for Lawyers with Depression through the Bar Association of Erie County which continues to meet today. In addition Dan developed a web site for Lawyers with Depression -

A project of the Jed Foundation & Dave Nee Foundation to fight depression and prevent suicide.

The site has a lot of good information and resources.
