I'm so pleased that this blog is prompting discussion within the wider legal community. On this page, you can find links to blogs and sites where Stiff Upper Lip gets a shout out, as well as other places where I've discussed mental health in the legal profession. I will keep adding to it as this little blog builds. Let's keep the conversation going!


I have been quoted in a piece by Today's Family Lawyer on the mental health benefits of doing pro bono work


I spoke to The Student Lawyer on the importance of investing in your mental health, managing wellbeing during lockdown, coping with rejection, and more.

On 27th May 2020, I was on a panel for Young Legal Aid Lawyers South West on taking care of your wellbeing during COVID-19, alongside Joanna Fleck of Claiming Space and Siân Pearce of Bristol Law Centre. A write-up of the event can be accessed here

My post on mental health and pupillage applications has been reposted with permission on The Lawyer and Lawyer Watch.  

Legal Cheek has reported on the same post in this article, 'Call for pupillage candidates to get more emotional support. and they have included it in their 'Best of the blogs', a weekly roundup of the top legal blogosphere posts. Legal Futures covered it in this article, 'Pupillage deadline "should be extended or scrapped" amid Covid-19'. It was also mentioned in the ICLR's blog in its 'Weekly Notes', a roundup of legal news and commentary. 

I recorded a podcast for Women in Family Law with Helen Conway on managing your wellbeing during lockdown. Further information can be found here

On 10th February 2020, I chaired an event hosted by Young Legal Aid Lawyers (YLAL) Midlands on mental health and wellbeing in the legal sector. A write-up of the event can be found here
