As members of the Law Society of Ontario (LSO), lawyers, paralegals, law and paralegal students can access free mental health services through the Member Assistance Program, operated by Homewood Health. The program, funded by the LSO, is available at no cost to LSO members and their families. MAP is a confidential service fully independent of the LSO and LawPRO.

Homewood offers in-person, phone, and virtual counselling from psychotherapists across the province. MAP also provides secure, single sign-on or telephone access to counselling, coaching, online resources and peer volunteers. LSO members can get professional help with issues related to addiction, mental or physical health, work-life balance, career, family, and more.

“There is no limit to the number of sessions that lawyers can book,” says Doron Gold, a staff clinician with the program. “For in-person appointments, wait times are extremely quick, usually only a day or two.” Lawyers can also call Homewood Health 24/7 to access a counsellor immediately. “Our goal is to create a safe place for people to call for help where they know their confidentiality is assured,” says Gold. 

A full description of the program can be found on the Member Assistance Program website. Call 1-855-403-8922 for more information.
