Wellness and Balance

If you are a lawyer, you know the challenges faced by the profession to find balance in your life and to maintain a sense of wellness. There never seems to be enough time in the day to meet the ever increasing demands of practice, home and self.

For those lawyers in need, the Nova Scotia Lawyers Assistance Program (NSLAP) offers a confidential referral and short term counselling service for members of the legal profession, their staff, and families who may have health or personal concerns. Resources are available for a full range of personal, family or life events and issues.

NSLAP also includes wellness programs online, to help you develop your Personal Wellness Plan, with a variety of e-courses and other tools designed to help you take charge of your health and well-being. You can access online resources through our provider Homewood Health™.

Visit the NSLAP website at Please note that NSLAP is your “company” name when you register. When you call the NSLAP number at 1-866-299-1299, (Français: 1-866-398-9505; TTY: 1-888-384-1152), your call will be answered any time, day or night, 365 days per year.
