I was certain that “disheartened” is a word. No question there. But what about its converse: “heartened”? Perhaps I should be embarrassed to admit this, but I wasn’t 100 percent sure. Eventually, I decided to look it up. (Spoiler alert: it’s a real word.) Why was the word “heartened” so important to me though? That’s simple: because I have been using it so frequently, in the past few months, when discussing the future of mental health issues in the legal profession.
