World Mental Health Day

Posted on

In recognition of World Health Mental Health Day, the Law Society and SLIA would like to remind members about Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL), the free, confidential assistance program for Saskatchewan lawyers, judges, law students and their immediate families. Homewood Human Solutions was retained to manage LCL’s program and remains LCL’s referrals coordinator and administrator for professional counseling services. Client contacts are made directly to Homewood Human Solutions 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for immediate confidential assistance. Homewood Human Solutions maintains confidential records, reports by reference only to client numbers and is careful not to reveal any details that might inadvertently identify a specific client. Funding of LCL is by means of a direct levy on Law Society of Saskatchewan members, which is collected by the Law Society of Saskatchewan and directed to LCL. There is no requirement that LCL account or report to the Law Society.

For information on what happens when you contact LCL, please see our previous post by Brad D. Hunter, Q.C., Director of Insurance, SLIA.
