LawCare is the charity that promotes and supports good mental health and wellbeing in the legal community throughout the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and Jersey. We provide direct emotional support and information. We work in partnership with professional bodies, regulators, legal practices and legal education providers to encourage a proactive approach to mental health and wellbeing.
We know it can be hard to ask for help. But it needn’t be. We are striving for a legal community where anyone who may need support knows how, when and where to seek help, without fear or stigma.
You are not alone if you are feeling the pressures of work or study or coping with relationship or financial problems, illness, bereavement, dependency or anxiety. Many lawyers face challenges such as these. Read true stories of how people in the legal community have coped with difficult times.
