Show Notes

In this episode of Topping the Curve I interview Denise Robinson, a former practicing attorney and owner of “The Still Center” where she focuses on wellness, and diversity, equity, and inclusion; particularly in the legal space, providing workshops and presentations to institutions and law schools. 

Time markers:
Start: how Denise entered her current field
14:45: mental health discussion

Throughout the episode Denise goes into depth with her experience in law school and how she has transformed that experience to ensure mental wellness: 

  • Knowing the signs of mental illness and when to reach out for help
  • Finding and using a social network and support system
  • Maintaining wellness during the virtual environment
  • How institutions and law schools can do more to aid students
  • Authenticity and surviving amongst different identities and backgrounds

Denise goes into depth about all of the above and more! A lot of things we discussed can be further explored in past episodes:
