Well done to Ines Perkovic on the publication of her first legal article to appear in the Law Institute Journal next week.
In a Snapshot:
- This article covers what mental health means, specifically for legal practitioners, the impacts of neglecting mental health, and tips to ensure wellness in the law.
- There are both “healthy’ and “unhealthy” levels of stress and the profession needs to be aware of vicarious trauma.
- In order to create mentally healthier workplaces, we need acceptance of wellbeing as a priority and destigmatise mental health as a show of weakness from high performing lawyers.
