Allegheny County Bar Association logo The Allegheny County Bar Association Health and Wellness Committee is presenting a program entitled Coping with Stress for Mental and Physical Health and Longevity on February 13, 2024 from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM Eastern.

The mental demands of a lawyer can often lead to increased levels of stress and burnout. Prioritizing mental health and stress management is becoming increasingly important in the legal industry.

This presentation will offer education to help you understand the mental and physical effects of stress and will provide you with skills that will minimize the effect of stress on your health. This session is intended for healthy individuals who will benefit from increased stress-coping skills, and also for individuals with diseases where stress coping can promote an enhanced sense of well-being and possibly influence the course of disease.

Examples of diseases that may benefit from enhanced stress-coping skills include hypertension, depression, asthma, arthritis, cancer, atherosclerotic heart disease, chronic pain, sleep disturbances, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.
