UW Law puts an emphasis on the health and well being of our students, staff, and faculty. These resources are provided to give members of our community the support they need to lead a healthier lifestyle.
In addition to other local or campus-wide resources, UW Law has a mental health professional on call for its students; services are free of charge to UW law students. While many referrals to Dr. Andy Benjamin go through Student & Career Services or the Dean for Students, UW law students may contact Dr. Benjamin directly at gahb54(at)uw.edu.
The Peer Support Program is a new resource for students run by Andy Benjamin, JD, PhD, ABPP and current UW Law students. It provides peer counseling to help end the feeling of isolation while at law school, resources to manage stress, and also promotes mental health in our student community. Peer counselors will help to empower their fellow law students to address the wide-range of personal and academic challenges associated with law school. Multicultural engagement will remain a key approach in all interactions. Visit their website to request a session with a peer counselor or learn more about the program.
