Brook Greenberg, Fasken Martineau LLP

Greenberg has demonstrated leadership in addressing mental health and substance abuse issues facing the legal profession. As a Law Society of BC Bencher, he chaired its Mental Health Task Force. This Task Force “is responsible for coordinating and assisting the Benchers in implementing the Law Society’s strategic goals in relation to improving the mental health of the profession, namely: reducing stigma around mental health and substance use issues and developing an integrated mental health review concerning regulatory approaches to discipline and admissions.” The Task Force has completed serious study and input-gathering from its members, relevant stakeholders, and gathering research from the American Bar Association and other jurisdictions in Canada. Brook Greenberg’s visibility on the point has advanced the credibility of the cause and has helped Law Society members understand that more needs to be done.
