We all have mental health. With one in four people experiencing a mental health condition in their lifetime, we will all know someone who is experiencing poor mental health.
This is a priority area for Osborne Clarke, we want to make our firm an even more of an open place, where people are able to talk about any difficulties they face with their managers and colleagues. To this end we have trained mental health champions across our three UK locations, with courses certified by Mental Health First Aid.
We have now extended this programme to all partners and people managers. As the people closest to their team, the course gives them the skills to encourage positive mental wellbeing and spot signs of mental health issues, have supportive conversations, and provide further signposting for them.
