Lawyers' Assistance Program expands services in collar counties

The Illinois Lawyers' Assistance Program has announced an affiliation with Dr. Diana Uchiyama, a licensed psychologist and lawyer in Kane County. With this new resource, LAP is expanding its reach in the collar counties, particularly DuPage and Kane Counties.

The LAP office in Chicago, at 20 S. Clark St., Suite 450, is open daily from 9:00 to 4:30 (it will be closed on Columbus Day). The telephone number for the Chicago office is (312) 726-6607; it can also be contacted by email at LAP can also be reached toll free at 800-LAP-1233.

To make an appointment with a LAP clinician at any LAP location, call the Chicago number (312) 726-6607. In addition to the Chicago and new DuPage/Kane County offices, appointments can be scheduled for Park Ridge, Bloomington, Carbondale, Edwardsville, and Rock Island.

And concerned individuals can contact LAP about a friend or colleague who may need help. From the LAP website: "Let us know over the telephone or in person who you are concerned about and why. We may ask you questions regarding the individual’s habits, whereabouts, and contact information. Any contact you have with LAP, including the fact that you contacted us out of concern for someone else, will remain confidential unless you state otherwise. Your colleague never needs to know that you called us."
