The Lawyers’ Mental Health Task Force (“Task Force”) was created in 2009 by former CMBA President Michael Brittain. The Task Force works to educate the legal community about mental health and mental illness and address issues impacting attorneys with a mental illness.
The Task Force is currently co-chaired by Cathleen Bolek of Bolek Besser Glesius and Rob Wolff of Littler Mendelson, P.C. The Task Force has a wide variety of members, including attorneys from large and small firms and other organizations, judges, and interested professionals in the field of behavioral health care.
