On World Mental Health day Lawcare have launched their Tell Ten campaign to reach more individuals who may be in need of support.


The campaign asks that you tag 10 colleagues or friends on social media or send an email or text to let them know about the free, confidential service from LawCare for everyone working in the law.


They have published the following “10 reasons to contact LawCare”:
