Queensland Law Society

Resilience and wellbeing resources for the legal profession

About

The resilience and wellbeing portal provides information and support tools for individuals and organisations within the legal profession to manage the pressures of work and life.

Tools including factsheets, videos, TJMF guidelines and LawCare can be accessed at anytime and in a convenient location.

Our wellbeing and resilience resources for organisations further assist in the development of healthy and supportive workplaces of varying sizes, whether it be an in-house legal team, community legal centre, or law faculty.

The portal is strengthened by QLS’s Wellbeing Working Group who focus on support, education, awareness and prevention of mental health issues in the legal profession, and the reversing of the prevalence trend.

LawCare

LawCare is a QLS member benefit and provides a range of confidential, personal and professional support. It is easy to access, complimentary and available to all Society members, their staff and their immediate family members.

The service provides access to up to six hours of counselling as well as access to trauma assistance, financial expertise, a dietician service, manager and supervisor support, and an online health and wellbeing portal.

LawCare can be accessed face-to-face, over the telephone, via video, online, or via Live Chat, whichever is more convenient and can help you to:

  • proactively manage your health and wellbeing
  • clarify a problem and identify options
  • develop plans to manage issues
  • support your family, friends and colleagues in times of need.
