Leading Wellbeing in the Legal Profession Workshop

Queensland Law Society in collaboration with the Centre for Corporate Health developed the workshop, Leading Wellbeing in the Legal Profession.

The workshop, designed specifically for supervisors in the legal profession, addresses the statistic that 60% of employees’ wellbeing at work is predicted by the quality of their relationship with their direct manager.

The aim of the session is to improve awareness, increase skillsets of supervisors and promote wellbeing and resilience in the workplace, reducing mental health issues in the legal profession.

The interactive workshop covers:

  • the current state of wellbeing in the legal profession
  • why the legal profession is particularly susceptible to mental health issues
  • the critical role supervisors play in the wellbeing of individuals and teams
  • a workplace framework to support a mentally healthy team
  • tools to proactively support an employee who is struggling with a mental health concern

By attending either a one-hour or two-hour workshop, attendees are eligible to obtain CPD points. 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Officer Course

It’s an unfortunate fact that legal practitioners are statistically more likely to suffer from mental health concerns. Becoming an accredited Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider) gives you the skills and knowledge to recognise and assist a co-worker with a mental health problem. This blended accreditation course has been purpose built to address the unique needs of the legal profession.

This session requires 6-8 hours of completed pre-learning before attending the course and is followed by a brief online assessment. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a digital PDF Certificate of Accreditation by MHFA Australia.

This event is an initiative of QLS Wellbeing Working Group.
