Mental health legal services
Ahead of World Mental Health Day on 10th October, the legal profession mental health charity LawCare has announced a new research study ‘Life in the Law’.
Recent years have witnessed a growing concern in wellbeing and mental health in the legal community. So, at the Institute of Paralegals we encourage our members and legal professionals to contritbute to the survey.
The results will help LawCare to improve the support available. And drive long-lasting change in legal workplaces so that people working in the law can thrive.
Take part in the Life in the Law Survey
The academic paper and results will be released next year.
If you are finding things difficult and need to talk, LawCare can help and provide emotional support to all legal professionals and support staff.
You can call LawCares confidential helpline on 0800 279 6888, email [email protected] or access webchat and resources at www.lawcare.org.uk
About the Life if Law Research Study
LawCare has teamed up with leading academics in the field to develop the research study. Which will look at the impact of work culture and working practices on the wellbeing of legal professionals.
The research seeks to understand the day to day realities of life in the law and uses three academic research scales for burn-out, psychological safety and autonomy.
Anyone working in the legal industry, including support staff, can complete the online questionnaire across the UK and Ireland.
