Working in the legal profession can be challenging. That challenge can be one of the best bits of the job, but we all have times when pressures of work or difficulties at home can lead to us feeling overwhelmed. Join Birmingham Law Society this Mental Health Awareness Week for an evening seminar on mental health and wellbeing. We are delighted to welcome a range of expert speakers, who will share insights into how we can be better at looking after ourselves and our colleagues. There will also be an opportunity to hear from legal professionals about their experiences of managing their mental health, the challenges they have faced and the tools they have used to look after their mental wellbeing.
