Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, drug addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession.

What about that “other” addiction – its impact on social isolation, stress, anxiety, depression and gambling disorders.

- A close look at what barriers exist that prevent lawyers and judges from seeking the help they need will be provided.

- Special emphasis will be placed on what callers to the LCL Confidential Helpline can expect, regardless of whether it is a self- referral or a request for intervention assistanceExpand summary
