Elizabeth Rimmer, CEO of LawCare, talks to Crafty Counsel about how the mental health charity supports lawyers who may feel overwhelmed by the pressures of the job.

“We help people to realise that it’s okay not to be okay. It doesn’t mean you’re not a good lawyer, because you’re feeling stressed or anxious.”

She says there is still a stigma around mental health and a concern by some in the profession that it may be seen as a career limiting move to seek support for mental health struggles.
