Mental health struggles exacerbated by the depths of the pandemic seem to have eased, leaving in their wake similar—and still concerning—levels of anxiety and depression that have plagued the legal industry for several years, and ALM Intelligence’s annual Mental Health Survey results showed.

More than 3,400 respondents from law firms around the globe detailed the state of their mental health, work environments, perceptions of colleagues, client expectations and the effects of remote work, among other areas tackled in this year’s survey. Overall, there were slight declines from 2021 in terms of those reporting anxiety (67%), depression (35%) and isolation (44%). There also was an increase in those who believe their firms provide a safe environment to raise concerns about mental health (45.4%).
