Harvard Law School is set to conduct a mental health survey of its students in November, part of a trend in which legal educators are playing a larger role in the well-being of their J.D.-hopefuls.

The survey aims to measure the rate of law students who have experienced mental health incidents, determine the adequacy and accessibility of existing mental health services and identify areas for improvement, and define the culture and stigma of mental health concerns on campus. It was developed by the Harvard Law School’s Student Mental Health Association, its student government body and the university’s Health Services Office.

“We recognize it as a first step in not only helping our students, but hoping to effectuate some change in reporting in the legal and professional community,” said Amanda Lee, vice president of Harvard Law’s student government. “Addressing the need for care is something that would support both attorneys at large and make us better and more empathetic representatives.”
