Well-being Resource Centre

The Law Society is committed to supporting the well-being of Ontario’s legal professionals and those entering the professions. Preserving, enhancing and investing in personal health, particularly mental health, is critical to the success of any legal practice and protects and serves the public interest.

As a legal professional, your work may pose real challenges to your mental health. Research shows legal professionals are almost twice as likely to experience mental health issues like anxiety, stress, depression and addiction as the general population.
