Mental Health Awareness

The Massachusetts Bar Association's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) presents a three-part program series on how to develop and maintain a diverse network and workplace by creating safe, healthy and supportive spaces.

To reflect Mental Health Awareness Month, the series begins with a conversation about microaggressions affecting persons with mental illness and other disabilities.

Learning objectives for Part 1 include:

  • Explain the myths about and stigma affecting persons living with mental illness, intellectual or developmental disabilities, or substance use disorders
  • Describe the discrimination faced by individuals with various disabilities
  • Identify how to use respectful language, e.g., person-first language, and accommodations to create a safe and healthy workplace

Co-Sponsored by the Massachusetts Bar Association's Lawyer Well-Being Committee
