Peer support is an integral part of the support provided by LCL. Sometimes having someone to talk to who knows how you feel can make a world of difference. Support provided by our member volunteers includes:
- Meet one on one with a lawyer, judge, or law student. The volunteer will typically have a similar background or experience, and he or she will share their personal experience, strength, and hope. There may be a single meeting or several meetings over an extended period.
- Visit a lawyer, judge, or law student in a treatment center or other facility. Often, the individual will be concerned about returning to work or re-engaging with others following treatment. The volunteer’s experience can help resolve some of those questions and concerns.
- Accompany the lawyer, judge, or law student to a 12 step or other peer support meeting. These meetings can be hard to walk into for the first time. LCL volunteers can often arrange to get together ahead of time to talk and then go to a meeting.
All LCL volunteer members are pledged to confidentiality. To contact us about finding a mentor, call us at 651-646-5590 or 1-866-525-6466 or email us.
