A Chat With Jim

‘Our Annual Check-Up With Dr. Jim Lucey’

No year would be complete without the benefit of the wisdom of Prof. Jim Lucey on how we should never underestimate the importance of minding our own mental health in the face of the constant stresses and pressures we expose it to in our daily practices.

These interactive sessions with Jim always prove to be among the most enjoyable and enlightening of our annual calendar, when he takes our questions and addresses the many issues that affect us as lawyers in a culture that is stigmatic of mental health.


Prof. Jim Lucey is Medical Director (Master) of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, Dublin, since 2008.

He has been a Senior Lecturer in Psychiatry at the University of London (1993-1997) at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, and at The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (1998-2002) and is currently Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Trinity College Dublin. Prof. Lucey has more than 25 years’ experience in psychiatry, and in addition to medical management he maintains his clinical practice at St. Patrick`s where he works on the assessment, diagnosis and management of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders.

He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London, as well as a member of the College of Psychiatry of Ireland. Prof. Lucey gives public lectures and is a regular broadcaster on mental health matters on RTE radio and speaks on mental health at CPD Board conferences.
