Mentoring supports wellbeing and helps build resilience. Many Inns and Specialist Bar Associations have mentoring programmes in addition to those run within chambers. The Bar Council also runs a mentoring programme which is gradually being extended to support all those who need mentoring across the Bar.
Details can be found at: http://www.barcouncil.org.uk/supporting-the-bar/bar-mentoring-service/.
Social support from people who understand your background and environment can help build your resilience. There are a number of groups across the Bar: consider getting in touch.
