One of our court's judges seems to be under unusual stress. Is there a confidential peer group assistance program for judicial officers?

Yes.  The Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) offers a confidential Judicial Assistance Services (JAS) program. The "JAS offers confidential assistance with mental/emotional, drug, alcohol, family, health and other personal problems. Services include assessment, referral, short-term or long-term counseling, follow-up and training."
