About the project
The Law Society's Professional Wellbeing Project aims to provide solicitors with practical supports, education, and guidance across three pillars: workplace culture, resilience and wellbeing, and emotional and psychological health.
The Law Society Professional Wellbeing Project was launched in October 2019 to address recommendations from a study commissioned by the Law Society in 2018. The study explored indicative levels of stress and wellbeing within the solicitors' profession, and members’ perception of mental health supports on offer at the time.

The Professional Wellbeing Hub
The Wellbeing Hub has been set up, as part of the Professional Wellbeing Project, to:
- Direct our members to appropriate wellbeing and mental health support services and guidance,
- Raise awareness and provide information on how to help colleagues facing mental health challenges,
- Provide members with information and signposting to help grow resilience and manage emotional wellbeing,
- Proactively dismantle any perceived stigma around mental health issues and champion best practice.
The information and resources on this hub are designed to help you and your colleagues work better together to improve wellbeing and professional resilience.
Julie Breen is coordinating the roll out of the Professional Wellbeing Project. If you have feedback on the resources provided or want to get involved in the project, you can reach out to Julie.
