SBM's Next Virtual Support Groups Begin Dec. 1

The State Bar of Michigan launches the next virtual support group series in December, providing well-being and a meaningful group atmosphere for Michigan attorneys.

The series offers a great opportunity for attorneys to connect with a small group of peers who understand the unique difficulties they face and to work together toward a solution. Facilitated by a Clinical Case Manager from the Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program (LJAP), this confidential program is offered exclusively to Michigan attorneys. One recent support group attendee had this to say about the experience:

“This group provided the opportunity for me to voice my fears and listen to others who were going through similar things in life. I was able to tell myself for myself that I am a good attorney and didn't need validation from anyone besides me for that to be true.”

The virtual support group meets via Zoom 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, from Dec. 1, 2021, to January 26, 2022 (no meeting Dec. 29, 2021). This is an open group, so you can attend any or all the meetings with no obligation for continued participation. The cost is $5 per session, or $30 for all eight weeks, if paid in advance.

Email or call (800) 996-5522 to register. Attendees must be willing to respect confidentiality, present with an open mind, be tolerant of others’ views, and be willing to explore the importance of lawyer well-being.
