Trish McLellan, LawCare’s Co-ordinator for Scotland and Northern Ireland, was invited into the Edinburgh offices of Maclay Murray and Spens LLP on Friday 18 August to deliver a presentation `Wellbeing…Why it Matters`.
As part of its health awareness month, the law firm was keen to raise awareness of mental health issues. Around 30 staff attended the presentation, who also took a supply of LawCare resources: the Top 10 Tips leaflets in particular proved very popular. They also retained a supply of LawCare’s A5 leaflets for their staff area for those who had been unable to attend the event.
“It was a pleasure to visit MMS,” comments Ms McLellan. “We’re always pleased to hear of organisations engaging with the wellbeing agenda. It’s encouraging that there appears to be growing acceptance that in addition to ensuring lawyers are properly trained in the delivery of black letter law, an equally vital component is looking after the health and wellbeing of those providing those services.”
