As the attention to mental health within the legal industry is increasing, more law firms are hiring professionals to head up their well-being efforts. With few road maps or even a clear definition of what a well-being professional is, it can be difficult to determine the right fit for a particular firm’s needs.

These professionals come from a variety of backgrounds with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience and with credentials in vastly different areas. They are licensed therapists, social workers, personal coaches, nurses, mindfulness experts and even personal fitness trainers.
