BarCARES is a program here to help you.
BarCARES is a confidential, professional, short-term intervention program provided cost-free for up to three visits per year by the Tenth Judicial District Bar to members of the Bar.
For those Tenth Judicial District Bar members who also belong to the voluntary Wake County Bar Association, cost-free assistance is available to immediate family members. The cost for eligible family members is paid for by the WCBA.
The Tenth Judicial District Bar and the Wake County Bar Association have contracted with Human Resource Consultants Behavioral Health & Psychiatry (HRC) to provide the BarCARES program. HRC is a local company with providers in Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill. They will make every effort to match you with the most appropriate provider.

BarCARES grew out of the Lawyer Support Committee, which also supports our members in their times of need. If you know of a lawyer in the Tenth Judicial District who has had a death in the family, has sustained an injury or illness or needs extra support from their colleagues - and who wouldn't mind if you shared, click here to send a confidential message to the co-chair of the Lawyer Support Committee.
