Vol. 3 - Iss. 4 pp. 51–56

Highly engaged and committed teams are less likely to experience mental health problems and, with current mental health awareness, legal leaders want to avoid problems ?on their watch'. This article shows ways in which lawyer leaders can uphold their legal and moral responsibility for the mental health of individuals while boosting the mental performance and resulting commercial impact across their full team by concentrating on keeping team energy high.
