Lawyers struggle with the fact that they need help themselves. Many may ask themselves, "What if someone finds out that I need help?" All inquiries to OLAP are governed by strong rules of confidentiality

OLAP provides resources to help lawyers cope with situations such as:

  • Burnout

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Panic disorder

  • Eating disorders

  • Gambling disorder

  • Drinking

  • Illegal and prescription drugs

  • Internet porn

  • Sexual compulsion disorder 

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Adult attention deficit disorder

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder


“If I could offer advice to any lawyer or law student, young or old, I would tell them not to be ashamed of feeling the way I did (serious depression/ suicidal), and not to be afraid to ask for help. Mental health issues do not fix themselves.”

“OLAP opened the door and helped me with some of the denial I was dealing with. When I came to OLAP, the detailed assessment I was required to take made me see the progression of my disease of alcoholism. After my assessment, OLAP gave me a recommendation to attend an out-patient treatment facility, go to 90 12-step meetings in 90 days, and call in on a daily basis for a year. This helped me gain a sense of accountability. I have been sober for 10 years.”

"Because OLAP is confidential, they did not have to disclose my depression to my employer, which eased my stress level about what my employer would do if they found out I was ill with depression."
