National Support Mechanisms
Resilience@law is a collaboration between five major national law firms; Allens Arthur Robinson, Blake Dawson, Clayton Utz, Freehills and Mallesons and The College of Law to take a leadership role in raising awareness and understanding of the nature and impact of stress, depression, and anxiety across the legal profession. The aim is to make a lasting contribution by developing a learning approach for people at each stage of their legal careers - from graduate lawyers through to partners.
Tristan Jepson Memorial Foundation
The Foundation's objective is to decrease distress, disability and the causes of depression and anxiety in the legal profession. Since the Foundation's inception in August 2008, the organisation has strived to create greater awareness of depression and anxiety amongst the legal fraternity.
BeyondBlue's mission is to provide a national focus and community leadership to increase the capacity of the broader Australian community to prevent depression and respond effectively. They aim to build a society that understands and responds to the personal and social impact of depression, works actively to prevent it, and improves the quality of life for everyone affected.
