Manitoba’s Peer Support Program For Lawyers

Our Mission is to enhance the immediate and long term wellbeing of Manitoba’s legal community, through peer support, education, community,  and liaison with professional therapeutic services. We provide support in a confidential and non-judgmental way. Law(yer) Strong is a non-profit corporation.

Matched Peer Support: Someone who has ‘been there’ can be an important source of compassion and support, and offer hope that there is a light on the other side of the struggle.  

Group Peer Support: We are offering drop in sessions virtually on Zoom. Each session will cover a different topic.

Law(yer) Strong offers Healthy Lawyers’ Community Activities to get lawyers away from their desks at lunch hour to participate in a 30 minute walk or run, or other activity such as yoga.
