How to deal with

years like 2020

What we can learn from firefighters
Webcast · Wednesday 17 March · 12:30pm - 1:30pm


Professor Samuel Harvey is the Deputy Director and Chief Psychiatrist at the Black Dog Institute and leader of Australia’s largest research program focusing on the links between work and mental health.

Over the last eight years, Professor Harvey has conducted research on the resilience of NSW’s emergency services workforce. During this Staying Well in the Law webcast, Professor Harvey will summarise the evidence from this work and consider the ways in which the mental health of other occupational groups, including solicitors, can be better supported.

Join us to hear what firefighters can teach us about coping with years like 2020.
