Suicide Prevention: Every Lawyer’s Opportunity
Just Ask: How We Must Stop Minding Our Own Business in the Legal World is a powerful suicide prevention video created by the Texas Lawyer Assistance program with the assistance of the Pennsylvania LAP. You may access the video and other suicide prevention resources here.
We recognize that content like this can be triggering for some. The video begins with a warning and offers support and encouragement to reach out to others.
Insights Newsletter – Healthy Boundaries and Relationships
February is often associated with Valentine’s Day, emphasizing relationships, especially romantic ones. However, it’s important to know that maintaining healthy boundaries is key to strengthening all types of relationships – be they personal, professional, or romantic. Healthy boundaries allow you to establish clear, safe, and reasonable expectations for how others should interact with you and vice versa. Check out this month’s article, “How Healthy Boundaries Support Healthy Relationships”.

Advance Notice of Upcoming CLEs & Events
We’ve had several requests from lawyers to provide email notifications of upcoming CLEs. So many, in fact, that we’ve developed a monthly email specifically for the purpose of letting people know what CLEs and events are planned, when they are scheduled, and registration information.
If you want to get on the mailing list, just provide the following information. You’ll receive an email from Vertical Response, the service we use, asking you to confirm your email address. You can cancel at any time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link contained in each newsletter.
