The Oregon Attorney Assistance Program invites you to join us for Well-Being Week in Law, May 2-6, 2022.

What is "Well-Being Week in Law"?

Well-Being Week in Law” is a national event that takes place annually the first week in May. The goal is to raise awareness about mental health and encourage action and innovation to improve well-being throughout the profession. In 2021, the event’s name was changed from “Lawyer Well-Being Week” to “Well-Being Week in Law” to acknowledge and include the contributions to the profession by those who are not lawyers.

The Institute for Well-Being in Law, which promotes and coordinates the event, challenges the legal community to come together to effect change for the good of all and invites individuals and organizations alike to get involved and make a difference.

The OAAP is excited to bring you blog posts and resources to enhance your well-being. Each day’s blog post will focus on a different aspect of well-being and will include suggestions to “watch this,” “read this,” and “do this.” You can choose from a veritable buffet of well-being activities all week. In addition, the OAAP attorney counselors will hold a 45-minute chat on Thursday, May 5, 2022, at 12 p.m. to discuss social well-being and opportunities to increase engagement. No sign-up required – just come as you are.
