How MAP services can help:
Peer volunteers are the foundation of the State Bar’s efforts to provide support for lawyers, judges and law students experiencing addiction, alcohol or substance abuse, mental health challenges and/or problems with stress or work/life balance. Peer Support volunteers are lawyers who are there to receive calls, provide support and encourage the use of appropriate help, and provide information about resources available to lawyers facing difficulties in their professional or personal life.
CLE and Education
Education is an important part of prevention and recovery. The State Bar of Arizona provides CLE programs on stress and wellness targeted for attorneys. Staff and volunteers provide presentations to law schools, specialty and local bar associations and law firms on the issues of substance abuse, mental health, recovery resources, wellness and the Member Assistance Program.
