    I agree with the article, but it does not go far enough. Mental health issues can start very early in life. Law students who have had treatment and overcome depression to the point where they could even survive law school should not be or worry about being penalized for a character or fitness problem under state bar scrutiny. If anything, they should be recognized for seeking treatment and successfully moving forward with their lives.
