Suicide Prevention.  Suicide is a very serious issue in our profession and has received significant media coverage of late.  Because of the attention to this problem, perhaps we are more willing to reach out and listen to colleagues who may be struggling.  LCL is here to help.  For our Minnesota Lawyer article on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention,  Read Here.
