Well-Being Week In Law
The Mississippi Bar is proud to be a sponsor of national Well-Being Week in Law (WWIL). During WWIL, the Bar reiterates its commitment to advancing the well-being of its members. Follow our social media and review the Bar’s Health and Wellness webpage for new resources throughout the week. Check out the below challenges for ways to get involved this week and month.

Well-Being Pledge for Legal Employers Challenge 
In support of this commitment, the Board of Commissioners previously adopted the national Well-Being Pledge for Legal Employers which the Professionalism Committee is working to promote to legal employers throughout Mississippi. The Committee challenges legal employers to demonstrate their commitment to their employees’ well-being by signing on to the Pledge. For more information about the Pledge and a list of Mississippi legal employers who have demonstrated their commitment to their employees’ well-being by signing on to the Pledge, click HERE

31-Day Mental Health Challenge
During this year’s Mental Health Awareness Month, the Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program encourages the members of the Bar to participate in a 31-Day Mental Health Challenge. The Challenge includes an activity each day that promotes positive mental health. The full calendar of challenge activities with related links can be found HERE.

YLD Spring Wellness Challenge
The YLD Attorney Wellness Committee is holding its Spring Wellness Challenge for members of the Young Lawyers Division. The challenge is running from April 4 through May 16, 2022, and the goal is to encourage members of the YLD to improve their overall wellness by incorporating several small but fun daily habits with some fun prizes as incentives. The challenge follows a BINGO format, so participants simply need to complete BINGO on the card that's linked HERE. Participants who achieve BINGO and submit their cards no later than May 20, 2022, will be entered into a drawing to win one of the three prizes: a $100 Amazon Gift Card, a $80 Amazon Gift Card; and a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Increase your chances of winning by posting a photo of yourself completing a BINGO prompt to the YLD’s Facebook page (one additional entry per photo, up to five additional entries). We would love to see your progress as you work toward completing the challenge! Please feel free to reach out to Cecelia Virden, Attorney Wellness Committee Chair, at [email protected] with any questions.
