Mandatory Mental Health and Substance Use CLE

$30 for MBA members | $50 non-members 

A landmark 2016 ABA/Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation national study found that attorneys are nearly twice as likely as the general population to experience problematic alcohol use, and younger attorneys (under 30) are approximately three times as likely. Reported levels of depression, anxiety, and stress were also significantly elevated among attorneys according to the study. Given these realities, the Oregon Supreme Court approved amendments to the MCLE rules requiring mental health, substance use, and cognitive impairment education. The speakers in this CLE will talk about when to ask for help for yourself and for colleagues, and how to recognize when someone needs help. You will also hear personal stories of recovery. This CLE will be presented by Senior Judge Gregory Silver, Multnomah County Circuit Court, Mae Lee Browning, Attorney at Law, Hugo Gonzalez Venegas, Oregon State Bar and Harry Wilson, Markowitz Herbold.
