March 28: Law Student Mental Health Day


Take a mental health screening. Today. – ABA for Law Students

We are encouraged to get routine physical exams to maintain our physical health and prevent heart disease, diabetes, obesity, etc. But how often have you been encouraged to check in on your mental health? Sadly, we do not live in a society where mental and physical health are treated equally.

Tyler C. Jarmillo Legacy Fund

The  Tyler C. Jaramillo Legacy Fund is now live and ready to take the next step towards promoting mental health awareness and encouraging wellness practices in the legal community. At the Dave Nee Foundation, we are grateful to Gregory Lamb for his commitment in the aftermath of losing Tyler to suicide to understanding the pressures law students face and how we can lessen those burdens. Thank you Gregory for being a friend and ally.

Tyler’s Fund will be used by the Dave Nee Foundation to  bolster our current and future programs, especially Uncommon Counsel.  The fund is envisioned as a legacy that honors Tyler’s dreams and ambitions of practicing law as well as her genuine caring and philanthropic nature. She dedicated herself to her ambitions, working tirelessly through law school and two attempts at the bar exam. Tragically, Tyler died by suicide after living silently with depression. PLEASE post, like, share, and Donate. Through partnerships with the Dave Nee Foundation and Razoo, all gifts are tax-deductible.
