How are you, really? Life in the law can be challenging and sometimes things can get on top of you. Can we help?

LawCare is the charity that promotes and supports good mental health and wellbeing across the legal community in the UK and Ireland.  We’ve been supporting lawyers for 20 years. No-one knows lawyers like we do.

Our confidential helpline is a safe place to talk without judgement. We’re here to help 365 days a year, with calls answered by trained staff and volunteers who have first-hand experience of working in the law.

Whether you’re a barrister feeling burnt out, a young trainee experiencing sexual harassment, a student struggling with the workload, an experienced partner worrying about a mistake you’ve made, a senior lawyer feeling like you’re  being pushed out  – we’re here to listen.

We are here to help all branches of the legal profession and our support spans the legal life from student to training to practice and retirement.

As well as our helpline on 0800 279 6888, we offer one-to-one peer support, and  information, resources and factsheets at
