New Confidential Support Helpline

Balancing everyday life with the requirements of work and home can create pressures for all of us. Criminal Bar Association (CBA) is delighted to announce that we have partnered with Health Assured to provide all members with complimentary access to a new confidential support helpline to assist you in achieving this balance.


How can Health Assured help?

Health Assured are available to support you with any personal or professional problems which could be impacting on your general health and wellbeing. Health Assured is an independent, external organisation who work to a robust, professional code of conduct. Dependent on the nature of the issue, support and information can be provided by fully qualified professionals.

All calls are treated in the strictest of confidence and in line with The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics. The only time confidentiality may ever be broken is if we believe you or a third party is in significant physical danger.
