Services For Judges

Judges experience many of the same problems as other members of the legal profession – stress, depression, balancing work and family, alcohol or drug abuse, and compulsive behaviors. However, a judge’s problem is more likely to go unnoticed and untreated because of the insular nature of the judge’s role in the legal system.

Confidentiality is Guaranteed.

Judges are frequently reluctant to seek help because of fear, denial, embarrassment – even hopelessness. Above all they are concerned about their problems becoming known and negatively impacting their status and reputation.
