Special Committee on Mental Health

The Florida Bar, through its Board of Governors, approved and created this special committee to conduct a comprehensive study of Florida’s mental health laws, make recommendations for improvements, and educate lawyers and judges on “best practices” and ABA Standards when dealing with clients/parties with mental illnesses. The Special Committee on Mental Health will promptly commence work and is scheduled to conclude its work with a report and proposed set of recommendations to present to The Florida Bar Board of Governors by no later than the Board’s May 2019 meeting.
