Mental Health and Addiction Resources
Law school is tremendously rewarding, but research also confirms that many law students experience serious mental health and addiction issues.
Georgetown Law is one of the only law schools in the country with four therapists and a psychiatrist on staff who offer a range of psychological services at no charge to students. The Law Center also has free screening tools, free online talk therapy for those with student health insurance, the Georgetown Law Mental Health Alliance (a student organization focused on mental health support), and a weekly addiction recovery group open to graduate students in the D.C. area. To learn more about the weekly student addiction recovery group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Located in the Gewirz Student Center, Georgetown Law Counseling and Psychiatric Services staff members are here to support students experiencing difficult life events. If you are feeling anxious, confused, lonely, angry, depressed, or overwhelmed, you may find it helpful to speak with a professional.
The Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence & Stalking Services (SARP) team coordinates free and confidential sexual assault and relationship violence services for Georgetown Law students, including crisis intervention and options counseling.
