Maslon attorney Michael Sampson will present at a two-day 2014 Elder Law Institute for Minnesota CLE on October 6-7, 2014.
On day two, Mike will present a two-hour discussion titled "I Am Not My Illness: Dealing with Mental Illness," which will offer new perspectives on mental illness. The audience will hear from an individual who has dealt with severe mental illness, and Mike will address the challenges lawyers face when they represent clients who are dealing with mental illness and highlight legal options and tools that can be employed in those situations. The goal of the session will be to learn about biases about mental illness and to develop an understanding of some of the practical strategies that can lead to better outcomes for clients.
