The 2018 suicide of the 45-year old senior legal counsel at Victoria’s Coroners Court was linked to a toxic workplace culture that turned her “dream job” into an “unimaginable nightmare” within a few weeks, an inquest found.
When I read the article – you can read the full article here – it spoke of how the woman was expected to work an already full-time job and add a new role to that,
of how she was unable to tell anyone at work how she wasn’t coping because if she did, she knew she’d never become a judge, something she’d been working towards her whole life,
and how, during the 39 medical appointments with GPs, psychiatrists and psychologists in a SIX MONTH period, she didn’t tell any of them that she had already tried to commit suicide.
How we can all take responsibility for our health & well-being (without losing our jobs!)
