Wyoming Lawyer Assistance Program (WyLAP)

Millions of Americans suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems and those in the profession of law are no exception. In fact, mental health problems impact members of the legal profession at alarming rates.

Lawyers work more hours than almost any other profession. They report higher levels of stress and often report stress associated with success. Since addiction is often a disease of unmanaged stress, there is a strong link between mental health problems and addictive use of alcohol or drugs. Many legal professionals find their careers and families slipping away as they struggle to manage mental health problems and/or addiction.

The mission of the Wyoming Lawyer Assistance Program (WyLAP) is to help lawyers, judges and law students get assistance for alcohol dependency, drug addiction and mental health problems; to protect clients from impaired lawyers and judges; and to educate the legal community about these issues.

Contact WyLAP at (307) 996-6834.

WyLAP has contracted with the Wyoming Professional Assistance Program (WPAP), which was established in 1997. It operates a professional assistance program as provided by W.S. ยง 33-1-115(a)(iii), for intervention, evaluation, referral and monitoring for licensed professionals suffering from chemical dependency. A trained clinician will work with individuals to determine the best treatment plan and then monitor their recovery. Wyoming lawyers, judges and law students seeking assistance may also contact WPAP directly at (307) 472-1222. www.wpapro.org.

Currently, WyLAP offers confidential assistance in the following areas:

  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse
  • Prescription Drug Problems
  • Anxiety, Stress, and Burn-Out
  • Depression
