Proud to support World Mental Health Day
Today Ellis Jones Solicitors are taking part in World Mental Health Day to encourage others to share their experiences with the view to raising awareness.
Our main aims at the moment are to:
1.Raise awareness amongst our staff by promoting World Mental Health Day and sharing some of our staff’s experiences; and to
2.Highlight the help available to our staff from, in particular, LawCare.
Throughout November, December and January the firm will be fundraising for the incredible charity LawCare. Firm wide we will be fundraising through our Ellis Jones Day which is held on the last Friday of each month and invites staff to dress down and to make a donation to charity. We will also be inviting a representative from LawCare in to speak to our staff and provide us with some visual materials to display around our offices.
