Lawyers Get No Mental Health Boost from Big Bucks, Study Shows

The mental health boost that usually comes with higher incomes is not making its way to lawyers in the U.S. and Canada, a new study finds. The ABA Journal reports that the study shows higher-status lawyers in both countries have more symptoms of depression than peers in the public sector and are no better off in terms of health. The study found that the larger the firm and the more high-paying the job, the more likely a lawyer was to have depressive symptoms. Overwork and work-life conflict were cited as reasons.
