ASSIST - ALBERTA LAWYERS' ASSISTANCE SOCIETY
Assist provides confidential help to lawyers, law students and their immediate families experiencing personal issues. Assist pays for up to four hours of professional counselling time offered by Forbes Psychological Services. Your time can be used to assess the issues you are facing, and to offer short-term counselling and a referral to long-term sources of help, when needed.
Assist also offers a peer support program delivered by volunteer lawyers, who provide a link for Alberta lawyers to address personal and professional issues in a safe and confidential environment.
