Mental Health Awareness Week 9-15 May 2022

With all the Brexit legislative changes, endless legal reforms, and returning to the office after the pandemic, working in the legal profession doesn’t look like it will be getting less stressful any time soon.

As such law firms more than ever need to consider the wellbeing and mental health of their employees. Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 (9-15 May) is therefore the ideal time for law firms to take stock and promote important issues.

LawCare and Loneliness


LawCare, the mental wellbeing charity for the legal community, are this year focussing on the problem of loneliness.

They are providing various free posters and materials that you can share around the office to promote Mental Health Awareness Week. The charity is also hosting a webinar for those working in the legal profession who want to understand and cope with workplace loneliness. Further details can be found on the LawCare website.

From managing client expectations to dealing with robust communication, we’ll help you understand your stress profile and how to help yourself in difficult situations.
