Dave Nee was a brillant law student who struggled silently with depression for many years, eventually committing suicide while in law school. The goal of the Dave Nee Foundation is to reach out to every law school in the country to educate society (especially lawyers and law students) about the symptoms of depression in themselves and in friends and family so that they might recognize and not feel ashamed about seeking treatment.A representative from the Dave Nee Foundation will share about Dave Nee's life and then detail the signs and symptoms of depression. They will provide information on local mental health resources. Law students will learn how to recognize the signs of stress/burnout, as well as being provided with general wellness tips. KYLAP will provide lunch and drinks, and will be on hand with lawyer volunteers to answer any questions.
