There are more factors than ever affecting mental health today. And eDiscovery professionals aren’t immune – they can be affected by factors in and out of the workplace. Here’s a new survey that is currently underway to better understand perspectives regarding eDiscovery and mental health.
The survey is being conducted by The Mind-Budget Connection, a volunteer group of attorneys, eDiscovery professionals and researchers working to address burnout in the eDiscovery industry.
The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Those who take it will be asked to answer questions about your perspectives and experiences related to both eDiscovery and mental health. No benefits accrue to you for answering the survey, but your responses will be used to inform recommendations for eDiscovery service management.
As the group notes on the survey landing page: “If you decide to participate, please understand your participation is voluntary and you have the right to withdraw and discontinue participation at any time without penalty. You may skip any question(s) you do not wish to answer.”
If you have questions about this survey, please contact Logan Cornett, Director of Research at the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about the initiative this study is a part of, please contact Chad Riley at email@example.com.
I think a survey on eDiscovery and mental health is a great idea and I’m interested to see what information gets derived from the survey results! I took the survey, please consider taking it too.
So, what do you think? Is your organization experiencing challenges with eDiscovery and mental health considerations of your eDiscovery team? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
