    About the presenters:

    Gianna Fermo

    Gianna Fermo is undertaking the Juris Doctor program after completing a science degree majoring in psychology. Gianna is currently helping to run A Reasonable Standard, which started as a website that explores and discusses the different mental health experiences students might encounter throughout their degree. Currently those at A Reasonable Standard are striving to destigmatise mental health and wellness by starting a conversation. The hope is that by sharing relatable and vulnerable experiences, and demostrating how students worked thier way through them, a culture of understanding and support may be fostered. Coming from a background in psychology, mental health is an important issue for Gianna and being involved with A Reasonable Standard offers a way to spread awareness for mental health. Gianna's hope that their work will foster a legal community in which everyone, no matter the problems they may face, are supported and respected.
