The Florida Bar takes lawyers health & wellness initiatives very seriously and that is why they are currently developing relevant programs and initiatives that benefit our members. As these programs become available, we’ll be sure to add them to this resource page.
Florida Lawyers Helpline
The Florida Bar mental health helpline (1-833-FL1-WELL) is a free and confidential service that connects members with professional counselors. Calls are always free. You may be referred for up to three free telehealth counseling sessions per year to help you develop strategies to overcome life’s challenges, balance priorities, and better handle both personal and professional pressures. Please note: The helpline is for Florida Bar members and is not a referral service to find a lawyer or make a complaint against a lawyer.

We asked young lawyers to send us thousands of the questions they had during the first few years of practice, and then we had experienced lawyers video their answers. Easily searchable, find answers to your questions under the following topics: (1) Professional Development; (2) Ethics and Professionalism; (3) Substantive Legal Questions; (4) The Florida Bar; and (5) Health and Wellness. Don’t see the answer to a question you have? Submit it through the website and we will try to find someone to answer it and add to our collection.

Lawyers Advising Lawyers
If you confront an issue in an area of law or procedure unfamiliar to you, the LAL program provides quick access to an attorney advisor who likely has the experience to help. A brief consultation with a LAL attorney advisor should assist you in deciding the best approach for resolving the legal issue you are confronting. Please note that the program is designed to supplement, rather than act as a substitute for the exercise of independent judgment by the attorney seeking assistance.
