The recent suicide of a young lawyer was extremely disturbing. We felt it imperative to share some insights on how to deal with the psychological issues and depression among lawyers because of uncertainties arising on account of COVID lockdown. As fellow lawyers that's the least we can do for each other. Hence we reached out to various mental health experts and have been able to get Dr Vikram Patel to speak on the issue in an interactive session. We also request that those who can please reach out to other lawyers who may be having any psychological issue in view of the lockdown and inform us of the kind of problems being faced. This would help us frame questions and structure the talk with Dr. Patel. Kindly mail your questions at [email protected]
