5.30pm to 6.30pm Mental Health Issues for Lawyers: It’s Okay Not to be Okay…. Or is it?

Anita offers a fresh perspective on addressing the rising concerns regarding mental health in the legal profession, drawing from her extensive 15 years of experience in both private and community legal sectors, as well as her contributions to the recent South Australian Law Reform review of the Mental Health Act. This promises to be an engaging talk about protecting your mental health from all those who would seek to destroy it.

This will include:

  • Common themes in practice which impact your mental health;
  • Identifying mental health concerns, in yourself and others;
  • Steps to prevent little problems becoming big obstacles;
  • Seeking help without impacting your career;
  • What to do if you or someone you know is not okay; and
  • Establishing protections to prevent mental health deterioration.
