The mental health of minority and women lawyers appears to have improved over the last year, according to the results of and ALM Intelligence’s 2022 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Survey, which also showed positive wellness trends for all lawyers.

This year’s survey, sent to over 3,400 lawyers at law firms around the globe in March and April, indicated that some of the most significant disparities in mental health between white male attorneys and all others, particularly women and attorneys of color, had shrunk since the 2021 survey.
