Illawarra law firm RMB Lawyers is introducing a new initiative to improve the mental health and wellbeing of its lawyers.
The century old business with a presence in Wollongong, the Southern Highlands, Shoalhaven and Sydney knows that in the fast-paced world of law dealing with high stakes and tackling heavy workloads can have a significant impact on lawyer’s mental wellbeing.
Industry statistics reveal that one-in-three lawyers will suffer some form of stress, depression, anxiety or burnout.
RMB Lawyers is tackling the issue head on by ensuring a supportive workplace environment. It is incorporating a new initiative designed to assist lawyers in managing the mental impact the profession can have.
In fact RMB is one of the first law firms to introduce the Mindfulness Training Program delivered by Chelsea Pottenger who is an accredited mindfulness teacher from EQ Consulting Co.
