Introducing LawCare

Law Training Centre understands the unique pressures a working student faces. When the strain becomes too much, did you know LawCare is there to offer a helping hand. LawCare’s aim is to promote good mental health and wellbeing in all branches of the legal profession. It is there as an anonymous, discreet and experienced service for anyone within the legal industry, their family or friends.
LawCare is an independent body, who receives donations from law firms and individual legal professionals. Their site is full of useful fact sheets for those struggling with issues such as addiction, visceral trauma and stress, to name a few. If a legal professional or student in law is experiencing difficulties, LawCare provides a free helpline between 9am and 5:30pm Monday to Friday. They can also be contacted via email. All calls and emails are answered by trained staff and volunteers who have worked in law and are better able to understand the unique pressures this profession has.
On top of that, LawCare runs a peer supporters programme, offering one-to-one support. This is accessed through the LawCare helpline. All peer supporters have first-hand experience of working in law and offer support, mentoring and friendship to those experiencing issues such as addiction, stress or depression.
LawCare also educate and can give guidelines to law firms about mental wellbeing and mental health awareness.
