On Feb. 16, the Martin County Bar Association hosted a CLE luncheon to focus on substance abuse and mental health issues.  Scott M.Weinstein, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist and the clinical director of Florida Lawyers Assistance, Inc. was the featured speaker.

In keeping with the MCBA’s and Florida Bar President Michael J. Higer’s 2017-2018 goals of bringing members health and wellness programming, attorneys were excited to learn more about FLA’s support programs, the realities of need in the legal community, and the opportunity to raise awareness and destigmatize substance abuse and mental health issues.
