KYLAP is a program of the Kentucky Bar Association that offers help to members of the Kentucky legal community who are struggling with mental health issues, such as depression, alcohol and drug abuse, stress, compulsive gambling or any other condition that may adversely impact the individual's personal or professional life.

"People who are sad or lonely often feel out of sync when everyone else seems to be celebrating, and the holidays can exacerbate these feelings," he explained.
