THE NEED

Legal and other professionals are at a markedly increased risk of mental health and addiction concerns.  They often face unique stresses, including the pressure to perform at a high level, client and firm demands, career fit, conflictual relationships and financial or family pressures.  They also guard their confidentiality judiciously to protect their professional standing, which, unfortunately, keeps them from seeking the help they need.
