In addition to our mental health services, the NC LAP is also a crucial resource for articles and information on the adverse issues law professionals can face. Our library contains hundreds of articles about mental health and substance abuse issues and stories from law professionals who have lived through them.
The Sidebar e-Newsletter
The goal of the Sidebar is to better connect the NC LAP with our LAP volunteers, LAP clients and State Bar leaders and staff. We envision the Sidebar as a place where we can share articles and information – from lawyers’ personal stories and perspectives on the practice of law, to national mainstream news articles about the effects of stress and strategies for work-life balance. We often hear of recovery-related events around the state and include a community calendar of events. You are invited to forward Sidebar to anyone whom you think may have an interest. Anyone is invited to subscribe directly to receive it.
All subscriptions are confidential and anonymous…no one will know Sidebar is in your inbox unless you give them access to your inbox. We are also accepting article submissions from anyone who may be interested.
We hope the Sidebar provides a small dose of inspiration to you in your day-to-day law practice, and reminds you that you are not alone with whatever frustrations you encounter in your law practice and in your life. You are not alone; in fact, you are in quite good company.
