The Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program, or TLAP, launched a new website June 1 aimed at providing information and resources to Texas lawyers, law students, and judges who are concerned for themselves or a colleague in regards to general well-being, mental health, or substance use issues.
The site, tlaphelps.org, is not only easy to navigate but also accessible 24/7 on any mobile device, tablet, or desktop. The site features links to articles, podcasts, videos, and TED Talks on topics including wellness, stress and anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder, suicide prevention, substance abuse, and cognitive decline. Resources are tailored to law students, young lawyers, lawyers, aging lawyers, judges, and legal employers.
TLAP works with the 10 law schools in Texas to develop programming to raise awareness about alcohol and drug abuse, mental health issues, and wellness. Crisis counseling, referrals, and peer assistance are available.
