Mental Health Services

We know law school can be stressful. That’s why we provide proactive mental health, wellness, and stress-relief resources. We also encourage students to reach out to the Office of Student Services whenever needed.

Our mental health and wellness offerings will continue to expand as we locate additional avenues of support for our students. Currently we offer:

  • Telehealth mental health services through UWill
  • Referrals to longer-term mental health services and providers (students enrolled in the law school’s health insurance policy can take advantage of mental health services covered through our policy)
  • Events throughout the school year, including wellness speakers and relaxation activities

New England Law also partners with Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, ensuring counseling and other offerings are specific to the unique needs of lawyers and law students.
