Our Peer Volunteers
We are judges, lawyers and law students in or in support of recovery from stress, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, substance use disorders, problem gambling, eating disorders, compulsive behaviors and various emotional and mental health concerns.
We understand the pain, fear and frustration of struggling with mental health and substance use issues. Many of us, too, once felt helpless and hopeless. With the support of others, we have met and overcome the challenges these issues pose and are living healthy and purposeful lives. Let us share our lived experience, strength and hope with you.
Matching You to a Volunteer
With your permission, we will match you with a JCJ (for judges) or LCL (for lawyers and law students) peer volunteer who has successfully dealt with and overcome the same difficulties you are experiencing. We look for someone with whom you will readily identify based upon career background, age, gender, etc. We will recommend a volunteer best suited to your needs from among a large statewide network of recovering lawyers, judges and law students.
