I really enjoyed the CLE. It was one of the best that I have attended.

Very good program.

This is a must-view presentation for lawyers. I was heartened by the speaker's sincerity and compassion, and the anecdotes he shared were typical, honest, and heartbreaking examples of the despair that is all too common to members of our profession. I was impressed by the speaker's gentle persuasion to reach out, and I feel compelled to volunteer. Thank you for certifying CLE hours for such an important topic.

I think this is a difficult subject but the presenter is sincere and offered his personal insights, which are helpful. Using the TED talk by the former California highway patrolman was creative and helpful.

This webcast presented new insights into the problems lawyers are facing and the means of getting help for yourself or for others.

Thank you. This might literally have saved my life.

Signs of depression/suicide and where to get help if someone is struggling.

I'm glad to see the TBA (And TLAP) addressing this issue.

Unfortunately, these issues do strike us attorneys very often. Good presentation and discussion about issue(s) that most do not want to acknowledge or discuss openly.
