Judicial Wellbeing


Stress is a human problem. It affects millions of Australians each year, and judicial officers are no different. Judicial work is demanding and intense, and carries the potential for both great satisfaction and high stress. Acknowledging the reality of stress and building the capacity to manage it effectively are important aspects of judging well. 

Created by the Judicial College of Victoria and the County Court of Victoria, Judicial Wellbeing distils and curates leading national and international wellbeing resources to assist judicial officers to respond optimally to stress in themselves and others.
