Lindsey Rogers-Seitz struggled with manic depression through young adulthood, law school and as a practicing health care M&A attorney. She has found psychiatric disability initiatives to be lacking in many law firms, which inhibits success of attorneys struggling with mental illness and increases the rate of attrition. Through research and creative thinking, Lindsey has developed a program to help law firms and other businesses build infrastructure to better support those with mental illness and increase diversity within the organization, in order to expand the collective brain power of the business.
