BarCARES is a confidential, short-term intervention program provided cost-free to law students at UNC School of Law. The program is there to help you by providing confidential assistance and brief, solution-oriented counseling. BarCARES is designed to offer no-cost assistance in dealing with problems that might be causing distress and can be used to help with:

  • Personal Issues: crisis intervention, depression/anxiety, substance abuse (drug or alcohol) and financial concerns
  • Family Issues: marriage/relationships, children/adolescents, parenting/family conflict
  • Work Issues: professional stressors, case-related stress and conflict resolution
  • Student coaching on stress/time management, etc.

Only you, your counselor and anyone you choose to tell will know if you use the BarCARES program. The counselors are licensed professionals, bound by the confidentiality requirements of their profession.

Although the North Carolina Bar Association, local bar groups and law schools provide funding for the BarCARES program and monitor its overall operation, they have no access to the names or other identifying information of any program user.
