Mental Health Resources

Mental illness and substance abuse are treatable conditions. Help is available to any Texas attorney through the Texas Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP), Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, and the Confidential Depressive Group for Attorneys. Studies show that the most effective recovery from mental illness and addiction is like a three-legged stool. Each leg is dependent on the other: Medicine, Cognitive Therapy, and Peer Support. Below are some resources that can assist you.
