Wyoming Bar To Offer Online Counseling to Members
The Wyoming State Bar has recently chosen eVideo Counselor as an approved member benefit.
eVideo Counselor allows lawyers to have counseling sessions in the convenience of their home or office, as they recognize that the needs of legal professionals are unique.
As Billie Addleman, the President of the Wyoming State Bar, mentioned in the press release, "despite heightened awareness about mental health, the legal profession continues to be plagued with depression, substance abuse, and other impairment issues...some lawyers live with the fear of others finding out about their disorder."
Along with this, Brad Rex, CEO of eVideo Counselor stated in the release that “statistics show attorneys are 3.6 times more likely to suffer from depression than the general public, with a suicide rate double that of the general population. In addition, the ABA estimates 18% of all attorneys suffer from problem drinking, which is twice the national average. COVID-19 has made this worse. Our program provides private, affordable care with exceptional counselors to help reverse these trends.”
Anonymity is maintained, and sessions are discrete, completely confidential, and provided at a discounted rate for Wyoming State Bar members and their families.
eVideo Counseling’s unique video counseling approach connects Masters level counselors with clients through a secure video link that is HIPAA-compliant.
