Mental Health Awareness Week: Join the discussion. Make a pledge. Be IP inclusive
The IP profession can often prove to be stressful.
Long days, complex legal issues, client-based challenges, and working to strict deadlines can often take its toll on the mental health of attorneys and support staff in this environment.
As methodical people who aim to find specific solutions to complex issues, it can be hard to accept when you are faced with a problem which simply can’t be fixed with logic.
This often results in individuals becoming insular and suffering with issues such as anxiety, stress, and depression privately.
At Wynne Jones IP, we recognise that it can be hard to open up about the private battles you may be facing and discuss your inner thoughts.
But just remember – you’re not alone.
In the spirit of supporting our peers in the IP profession, we recently held a very successful Mental Health Awareness Week event in conjunction with IP Inclusive and the IPO which we fittingly titled: Get Off That Hamster Wheel! Perspectives on stress management for a better work/life balance.
