RL 109: Jennifer Day — Recognizing How Depression Can Manifest and Staying Vigilant with Self-Care

The Resilient Lawyer with Jeena Cho

Release Date: 01/14/2019

In this episode, I am excited to have Jennifer Day on to talk about breaking down the stigma that comes with depression and how lawyers are susceptible.

Jennifer graduated from law school in 2004. She served as a judicial law clerk in Anchorage, Alaska, then became a prosecutor in 2005 and has never looked back. She has prosecuted a variety of cases, and has also presented on the topic of depression amongst prosecutors across the state of California for the past few years. Her spare time is spent with her family, or you can find her out on a photography adventure.

 

Topics Covered

  • Managing clinical depression with work life, and how much to share at work about being clinically depressed.
  • How depression manifests itself to her, and how she recognizes it.
  • The stigma of discussing depression amongst prosecutors.
  • The difference between compassion fatigue and clinical depression.
  • How it was harder to come out as depressed than it was to come out as gay.
