As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we’re pleased to have released a brand-new episode of Refreshingly Honest Chats with Lawyers, all about the important topic of mental health in the law.
Joining our host Duane Cormell is Sam Jardine, Partner in the Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy team at Fieldfisher and LawCare Champion.
Topics on the agenda include:
- How and why Sam got involved with LawCare, the mental wellbeing charity for the legal community
- Why the ‘emotionally and culturally broken’ legal profession is lagging behind other sectors when it comes to wellbeing
- The steps law firms can take to tackle the issues of burnout and poor wellbeing
- The impact flexible working can have on mental health
We would also love to give shout out to LawCare for putting us in touch with Sam and highlighting the amazing impact the organisation has in the legal profession. LawCare are a mental health charity for lawyers so if you or anyone you know is struggling with mental health then please do get in touch by visiting their website or give them a call on 0800 279 6888
