The statistics around suicide amongst men make for stark reading, especially amongst professions such as law. Men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women and there is often a reluctance by men to talk about mental health issues and to seek help. A new wellbeing group has now been set up aiming to end the stigma around mental health.
We were delighted to be joined live in the Hey Legal Social by James McFarlane, Solicitor at Burness Paull. James was in discussion with Edith Forrest, Advocate and they covered:
What gave you the idea to set up the group? Aims?
What is the format like?
How do people get involved?
Have lawyers been engaging with it?
Is there any way we can help?
You can here all the answers here from the Hey Legal Social.
