Bar exam registrants may now call helpline for counseling assistance
To assist with added stresses caused by the pandemic, all registrants for the August 2020 bar exam in Florida may now use the Florida Lawyers Helpline — a free confidential 24/7 service providing professional mental-health counseling.
By calling 1-833-FL1-WELL (1-833-351-9355), exam registrants will speak with counselors who can also make referrals for up to three free sessions a year with a licensed mental-health professional via phone or virtual video service.
Calls to the helpline are unlimited and confidentiality is protected — no information shared with the counselors is provided to the Florida Board of Bar Examiners or The Florida Bar, including the callers’ name.
The confidential helpline service is an ongoing Florida Bar member benefit through CorpCare Associates, Inc., which has over 200 providers across Florida and 11,000 nationwide, and also serves members of the State Bar of Georgia, Maryland State Bar Association, and South Carolina Bar.
This expansion of the helpline for August bar exam registrants is offered through a collaborative partnership with The Florida Bar, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners, and the Florida Supreme Court.
