LCL-CT recognizes that heightened levels of stress, depression and anxiety are disproportionately present in the legal profession.  Frequently a mental health issue can occur concurrently with a substance use disorder.  These conditions can be devastating to a lawyer both professionally and personally. 

Lawyer wellbeing is a high priority and critical element of LCL’s mission statement.  To address our legal community’s need for confidential, private mental health support and care, LCL has available mental health professionals to whom the program refers Connecticut lawyers, judges and law students for free mental health evaluation and assessment services. 

This program does not supply evaluations or other documentation to any regulatory or state agency.  Involvement with this program is confidential in accordance with the provisions provided by statute.  

To learn more about the free LCL mental health program, please contact us at info@lclct.org or call us at 860-563-4900.
