Thoughts on Online Training:
The world is getting more and more connected, allowing us to reach a wider audience. Online training is central to making this possible. Particularly in the legal industry, where people operate in high-pressure environments, time is of essence. “Being able to access training at any time that suits you, from any location in the world makes programs more feasible for legal professionals.”
“I decided to become a speaker for Legal Beagle because I see how much need for improved mental health there is in the legal industry.” With the focus often being on performance, many legal professionals leave their mental health behind in favor of performing and meeting expectations at work. Providing short trainings on different mental health topics can give these professionals the tools to maintain their mental health without taking too much time away from their work.
What do your Mental Health CPD Courses offer?
Having witnessed how untreated mental health issues can impact entire family systems over multiple generations, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of making the effort to protect our mental health. Understanding mental health issues and gaining tools to maintain mental health is crucial in many ways: it not only improves our wellbeing, but also our relationships, our productivity, and our quality of life.
In the two years of a global pandemic, we have seen a big increase in depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. The Covid-19 Mental Health Support for Legal Professionals is the newest accredited CPD course that specifically tackles Covid-19 related stresses that strain our mental health and wellbeing. In this course, participants will learn how they can protect themselves and their loved ones from its negative impact.
