A Look at the WisLAP / UW Law School Health Ambassador Partnership

A recent article in The Badger Herald highlights a valuable partnership between the Wisconsin Lawyers Assistance Program (WisLAP) and the University of Wisconsin Law School (UW Law). In an effort to bring more resources to law students, and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and substance use disorders, health ambassadors (currently eight total) serve as liaisons between WisLAP and the UW Law student body. In their role, liaisons develop programming to expand health and wellness support, promote healthier social events, and are there to listen to a fellow student’s concerns and personally follow-up.

Read what Mary Spranger, WisLAP manager, and Jen Bizzotto, one of the UW Law health ambassadors, have to say about the partnership in the article, “UW Law School looks to de-stigmatize mental illness among graduate students.”
