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 works with the Blue Cross professional counselling program. All Lawyers, Articling Students, and Law Students, are eligible for up to 12 hours of counselling per family per year through their membership with the Law Society of Manitoba as part of the Employee Assistance Program.
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.

Join us for Mindfulness Mondays via Zoom for 30 minutes of mindfulness meditation, every Monday from 8:30-9:00 am. What a great way to start the week – calm and focused. We keep cameras off, so your focus is solely on breathing and being present in the meditation. Meditation has been proven to help with anxiety, and depression in clinical studies, and can make a big difference in how you feel and how you can regulate emotions. A great life skill to practice.
