What role can you play in adopting the TJMF – Best Practice Guidelines for psychological wellbeing in your work place?
Following the Foundation’s launch of the ‘Tristan Jepson Memorial Foundation Psychological Wellbeing: Best Practice Guidelines for the Legal Profession’ earlier this year, John Canning joins us for the final ‘Inspirations before breakfast’ event for the year to share his personal story about living and working in the legal sector with a mental illness.
John will also discuss how firms and organisations in the legal sector can adopt the Best Practice Guidelines which are aimed at addressing factors in our workplaces which may contribute to mental illness and the role each of us can play in moulding work practices which are conducive to reducing the incidence of mental illness.
John has been with King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) since 1995 and became a partner in 2000. In 2008 John was diagnosed with mental illness. John has worked with KWM positively to alter his lifestyle so he can continue in his role with the firm with the support of KWM.
John is a spokesperson for change and de-stigmatisation of mental illness in the profession and the wider community. John and his wife also work closely with Black Dog Institute in Sydney in a community role.
