Bass, Berry & Sims is committed to the well-being of everyone who works at the firm. In demonstration of this commitment, we were one of the first law firms to sign on to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Well-Being Pledge. The Pledge aims to improve the mental health landscape and to prevent substance use within the legal profession. The Pledge calls upon legal employers to recognize that substance use and mental health issues represent a significant challenge for the legal profession and to acknowledge that more can and should be done to improve the health and well-being of those who work in the industry. More information about the Pledge and the ABA Working Group to Advance Well-Being in the Legal Profession can be found here.
