Introducing the new Well-being Resource Centre

February 24, 2022

The Law Society has launched a new Well-being Resource Centre, designed to shine a light on mental health and wellbeing in the legal professions.

According to research conducted by the Université de Sherbrooke, legal professionals are almost twice as likely to experience mental health issues like anxiety, stress, depression and addiction as the general population. The Well-being Resource Centre is an important part of ensuring that legal professionals know they aren’t alone and that help and resources are available.

The new resource centre brings together new and existing well-being supports under one easy to access banner. Inside the Well-being Resource Centre, legal professionals will be able to:

  • Find topical articles on mental health and well-being.
  • Learn more about the professional and confidential mental health services provided by the Member Assistance Program.
  • Find strategies, practice supports and resources to manage personal well-being in the legal profession.
  • Choose from a selection of live and on-demand CPD courses about mental health.
  • Find research and reports related to mental health in the professions.
  • Get connected to government, healthcare and community mental well-being supports.
