Mental Health Week: Happy Lawyer Happy Life

Brisbane family lawyer Clarissa Rayward has joined the campaign to improve mental health in the legal profession with a new series of podcasts. The ‘Happy Lawyer Happy Life’ series features weekly interviews with successful lawyers, judges and barristers talking about their passions, motivations, how they manage stress, and how they find happiness in their busy day-to-day lives. Queensland Mental Health Week runs from Sunday 9 October until 15 October.

In this candid series, the Brisbane Family Law Centre founder interviews key members of the legal profession with compelling stories that open a positive dialogue about finding happiness in your career and help you to re-think your work-life balance.

The first five guests share real conversations about taking simple steps to improve their state of wellbeing:

  • Clarissa Rayward, director Brisbane Family Law Centre, author, blogger and mother
  • Fiona Caulley, senior associate, Phillips Family Law
  • Matthew Burgess, director View Legal, author, speaker and entrepreneur
  • Dr Jacoba Brasch QC
