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. There’s no cost for calls to the hotline and 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.

In addition to mental health support, the Helpline’s licensed and certified counselors can assist with other stressors members might face during or after the pandemic – such as providing a case manager to help find long-term care facilities for family members or financial consulting to help members with debt management, budgeting, and retirement planning. All these services are completely confidential and available at no cost to eligible Bar members.

Florida Lawyers Helpline is provided through an agreement with CorpCare Associates Inc., which has over 200 professional counselors across Florida and 11,000 nationwide.

Florida Bar members may reach the helpline by calling 1-833-FL1-WELL.

Please note: this number is for Florida Bar members and is not a referral service to find a lawyer or make a complaint against a lawyer.

Tenga en cuenta: Este número es sólo para miembros del Colegio de Abogados de la Florida (The Florida Bar). No es servició de referencia para asesoría legal ni es donde se presenta una queja en contra de un abogado.

eVideo Counselor

eVideo Counselor provides online face-to-face video counseling with licensed mental health therapists at a discounted price for Florida Bar members and their families. Recognizing the unique needs of legal professionals, eVideo Counselor allows lawyers to have counseling sessions in the convenience of their home or office, without the time and hassle of driving to a counselor’s office. Anonymity is maintained—no one is seen entering a counselor’s office. Sessions are discrete and completely confidential.

Traditional counseling sessions typically cost $150-$300 per one-hour session. Florida Bar Members and their families receive eVideo Counseling sessions for only $100 per session, a savings of $25 from the standard rate of $125.

A key factor for therapy success is high engagement between the client and counselor. eVideo Counselor uses the Sixth Sense Counselor Engagement Model™ to select outstanding licensed Masters level counselors and match them with clients. Most counselors have specialized training to meet specific needs. With no geographic constraints, a counselor can treat anyone anywhere in the state, creating a bond between clients and therapists that results in positive outcomes and less than a 10% no-show rate, compared to 25%-40% for traditional counseling.

eHome Counseling’s unique video counseling approach connects Masters level counselors with clients through an easy, secure video link. The HIPAA compliant platform with online scheduling allows connection by computer, tablet or phone, at work, home, school or while traveling. It is convenient, confidential and cost effective.

In addition, eVideo Counselor provides metrics to rapidly diagnose issues and track improvement. Through the Deep Mind Insight™ program, clients can receive an online assessment that quantitatively measures anxiety, depression, substance use disorder and other conditions. The client gets a written report that is discussed with their therapist at the first session. The assessment is then repeated periodically to show progress and final resolution. The usual cost of the Deep Mind Insight Program is $50, but Florida Bar members and families receive a 50% discount and pay only $25.
