The WSBA Lawyers Assistance Program
provides individual consultation services for those struggling with depression,
work stress, addiction and life transition,
among other topics. The initial consultation appointment costs $20, and any
additional sessions are on a sliding scale
based on your financial situation. Con-sultations are an opportunity for assessment of the problem(s) you may be
facing, identifying useful tools you may
utilize to address these issues, and referral resources to find the right resources
for you. Our licensed counselors can offer
up to six consultation sessions. We also
provide consultations with job seeking
and can offer informational and referral
resources on a range of topics. Contact
us at 206-727-8268, 800-945-9722, ext.

Peer Advisor Training
Peer advisors are a group of more than
50 attorneys statewide dedicated to supporting attorneys in their careers. The
WSBA Lawyers Assistance Program
(LAP) often introduces attorneys to peer
advisors for support with mental health
or addiction issues, although sometimes
a peer advisor is helpful for discussing
topics such as career transition. LAP will
be hosting a training on April 3 from
10: 30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the WSBA offices. If you are interested in joining our
community of peer advisors or would
like to be introduced to one, contact us
at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-727-8268 or
800-945-9722, ext. 8268.
