Mental health, in and of itself, is an under discussed topic in the legal profession, and a niche area that is even less discussed is mental health for men in the law. Today I speak with Mark Yacano, who is a director at Major Lindsey and Africa and also hosts the podcast Erasing the Stigma: Conversations about Mental Health in the Legal Profession. In our conversation he talks about his own survival journey in mental health and what he learned when looking into the state of men’s mental health in the law. We talk about the ways toxic masculinity can affect their capacity to ask for help and how managing and surviving mental health is not reserved for any particular group. We all deserve to express who we are and ask for help on our own terms.
