‘A treasure trove of advice that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.’ Angie Asimus, Channel Seven

Before long, mental illnesses will be the most prominent, if not the most common, ailments suffered by Australians. One in four young people suffer some form of mental illness during their school years. In an average classroom of thirty school students, seven will manifest a psychological condition such as depression. Only two of those seven will seek help, while the other five will continue their daily routine without the benefit of any aid whatsoever.

But students – and those who care for them – can and do have the capacity to take proactive steps to live a more holistic life while in school, so as to ensure not only academic success, but also to emerge as more rounded and balanced people.

In The Wellness Doctrines for High School Students, lawyer and author Jerome Doraisamy tackles head on the stresses that confront young people today, providing sound knowledge based on his own experiences and advice from experts in the field, as well as safe, practical solutions.

Down-to-earth, reassuring and sane, The Wellness Doctrines for High School Students is the essential go-to manual for teens.

‘High school should be the best time in a teenager’s life. But, the reality is, for some kids it’s a bloody nightmare. This book is full of proper advice about dealing with the big stuff, not sweating the small stuff ... and nailing it by graduation day.’ Karl Stefanovic, Co-Host, TODAY Show

At least one in three legal professionals suffers from depression.

A litigious culture, extreme hours and relentless pressure – both internal and external – can all take their toll. Young lawyer Jerome Doraisamy learnt the hard way how pushing yourself to the physical and emotional limit can wreak havoc on your mental health and wellbeing.

Over an 18-month period starting from late 2011, including one period of hospitalisation, he suffered from severe clinical depression. His first book, The Wellness Doctrines, addresses the crisis in the profession head-on, offering practical tools and guidance for young legal professionals via insightful case studies from academics, managing partners, senior solicitors, graduates and students.

Showcasing a “by lawyers, for lawyers” approach, this book provides the inspiration a young legal professional needs to take charge of his or her health and wellbeing.
