MANAGING stressful conversations was the topic at a special session for Swanage solicitors.
Staff at Ellis Jones Solicitors marked Mental Health Awareness Week with a Lunch & Learn workshop, with Dorset Mind.
The workshop was held in-person and remotely for staff in the firm’s six offices, including in Swanage High Street.
Nigel Smith, managing partner, said: “Law can be an extremely pressurised profession, especially when dealing with clients and colleagues at some very difficult times.
“We are committed to supporting our people in a meaningful way by creating a working environment with an ethos of support and a focus on wellbeing inside and outside of the office.
“Dorset Mind joined us for a very well received Lunch & Learn meeting in January and we are grateful to the charity for returning for another incredible valuable session during Mental Health Awareness Week.”
Ellis Jones holds two to three Lunch & Learn sessions each month for personal and professional development in a range of subjects.
County charity Dorset Mind supports people experiencing mental health problems in accessing vital support.
The charity says one-in-four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England.
