Mental health issues rife in the law but support not there, research shows

Mental health issues rife in the law but support not there, research shows

Nearly half of senior decision-makers in the legal profession are aware that employees have mental health issues but just a fraction say they are given the support to help them.

A YouGov study surveyed senior decision-makers in the legal profession on mental health in the workplace. In total, 606 decision-makers were surveyed:
  • 40% of those asked said they were aware that some of their employees had mental health issues but just 6% said they were given enough support to help tackle the problem
  • 23% of those surveyed said they believed that their employees felt comfortable speaking about it with them
  • 27% said there is a greater 'stigma' towards mental health conditions than physical ones in the workplace
  • Some employers now offer health and wellbeing services to staff. Of those surveyed, the most prevalent service offered was flexible working hours, followed by the provision of quiet areas and staff surveys
