Mental Health & Wellness

Currently there is a limited amount of training for licensees who work with clients that have mental health issues. This poses critical questions about professional sustainability and how to proceed when there are concerns about a client’s capacity and competency. Working with a range of institutional partners this cluster will respond to professional and ethical issues faced by licensees. Efforts will also focus on implementing schemes to increase understanding of mental health and awareness among law and paralegal students. It is anticipated that this cluster will be comprised of several initiatives that ultimately converge towards broader impact in the profession.
