I speak to organisations about my own experience of poor mental health, in hope it might help others avoid the worst of what I went through.
It turns out that some want me to address the subject more obliquely – without going into my own experience. And I love that too.

In which lawyers learned strategies to avoid burn-out, and I found it unnecessary to go into great detail about my own mental health crisis.
A workshop that was full of laughter, for 40 lawyers at the London HQ of Google.
Remarkable how one person’s story can seem to resonate with so many. Thank you Macfarlanes for asking me in, and looking after me so well.
