Message from President Don Anthony

Research suggests lawyers experience mental health crises related to addiction and illnesses such as depression at higher rates than the general public. It’s not a weakness to ask for help. Contact the Law Society’s Professionals’ Assistance Program if you want to talk to someone. Their services are free of charge. You can find them here:

Also, here is a link to a presentation that our program provider gave in September which details the services they offer.

Finally, check in with your colleagues occasionally – both in the office and at the Bar generally. It’s trite to say, but check on your strong friends. This can be a tough profession we have chosen, but none of us are in it alone.
