This session will focus on the role that Heads of Legal and Practice Group Heads should play in increasing awareness of the first signs or symptoms of mental health issues and then proactively help affected colleagues and team members. With over one billion people said to be suffering from a mental health disorder worldwide, this problem cannot be ignored. What measures can be taken to ensure appropriate support is given to eradicate the stigma and ensure that lawyers have the self-awareness and confidence to seek help where needed?
