Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Supports DBSA and Mental Health Awareness Month

Schiller DuCanto & Fleck is proud to announce its unwavering commitment to mental health and its support of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) during Mental Health Awareness Month. Attorney Bridget Maul, a distinguished member of our firm, serves on the national board of DBSA, further reinforcing our firm's dedication to mental health advocacy.

Mental Health Awareness Month, observed every May, provides an opportunity to shed light on the importance of mental well-being and promotes understanding of mental health conditions. As a firm deeply committed to the personal wellness of its clients and the broader community, Schiller DuCanto & Fleck recognizes the significance of addressing mental health challenges, especially during emotionally challenging legal proceedings such as divorce and custody cases.

DBSA, a leading nonprofit organization, provides hope, help, support, and education to those living with mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder. The organization plays a vital role in improving the lives of millions of individuals and their families by offering peer-led support groups, educational resources, and fostering community connections.

Bridget's service on the national board of DBSA is a testament to her dedication to mental health advocacy. Her involvement in shaping the organization's initiatives and programs reflects her passion for promoting mental well-being and creating a society that supports individuals facing mental health challenges. She has served as president of the DBSA Greater Chicago chapter since 2019 and on the board of that chapter since 2013. 

Our firm understands the unique emotional and psychological challenges faced by individuals involved in family law matters. Divorce and custody cases can often be emotionally taxing, exacerbating underlying mental health conditions or causing additional distress. Our attorneys provide clients with compassionate guidance, leveraging their extensive legal knowledge to navigate these difficult matters while promoting mental well-being throughout the process.

Schiller DuCanto & Fleck remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting mental health awareness, advocating for those struggling with mental health conditions, and supporting the efforts of organizations like DBSA. By combining legal excellence with an empathetic approach, the firm strives to make a positive impact in the lives of its clients, fostering brighter futures for families and communities.
