Every year, October 10th marks World Mental Health Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness of mental health and increasing discussion around what is a still a much-stigmatised topic in many areas of society. The World Foundation of Mental Health outlines a theme for World Mental Health Day each year; this year the theme is ‘Mental Health is a Universal Human Right.’
This year, Ben Hall and Shaun Costa, Ambassadors for Chambers INSPIRE Mental Health & Wellbeing Committee, were honoured to welcome Elizabeth Rimmer to record a podcast in recognition of World Mental Health Day. Elizabeth is the Chief Executive of legal charity LawCare and in this episode she discusses the important work LawCare are doing to increase mental health awareness in the legal sector. Further topics of discussion include this year’s theme, progress as well as misconceptions related to mental health and advice on looking after your mental health.
The Chambers D&I podcast is also available to listen and download on Spotify.
