Protecting your Mental Health
Wednesday, 19 June 2024 | 4:30pm - 6:30pm | In-Person & by Webinar - CPD and Networking Drinks
1 CPD unit (Practice Management/Business Skills)

Presenter: Anita Brunacci - DBH Lawyers

In collaboration with the Law Society's Wellbeing and Resilience Committee, we bring you this CPD and networking event. In this session, Anita will bring a new perspective on the growing mental health focus within the profession from her 15 years of experience in both the private and community legal sectors, with an engaging talk about protecting your mental health. This session will benefit all practitioners, with discussion moving from identifying potential triggers and concerns, to seeking help and helping others.

You will learn this:
  • Identifying common themes in practice which impact your mental health, and how to prevent these from becoming larger issues
  • Identifying mental health concerns, in yourself and others
  • What to do if you or someone you know is not okay, including taking steps to seek help without impacting your career
  • Establishing protections to prevent mental health deterioration
For those attending in person, this session will be followed by networking drinks and selection of appetizing canapes from Taylor and Holmes, from 5:30 to 6:30pm.
